Chisorsa and Dillian Whyte tore the house down again in a thrilling December rematch but a KO defeat for the Brixton fighter raised questions over whether he may decide to call it a day and hang up his gloves.
The 35-year-old immediately shot down talk of retirement however and now has his eye on a meeting with former WBO champion Joseph Parker or the undefeated Oleksandr Usyk.
Having dominated the cruiserweight division and become the first man to hold all four major world titles at the weight, Usyk moves up to heavyweight in May when he will take on Carlos Takam.
‘Del Boy’ hopes to be next in line and now working under Dave Coldwell, who previously trained former cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew, he is confident there are more big nights ahead of him.
A defeat at the O2 would be surely derail those plans, however. Little-known Gashi has won 15 of his 17 professional bouts, losing his two fights against anyone of real note.
One of those was against Takam – a man Chisora beat last year – with the other to Tom Schwarz, who takes on Tyson Fury later in the summer.
