Derek Chisora would likely accept a fight with Hugie Fury in an attempt to keep himself in contention within the heavyweight division, according to promoter Ben Shalom.

The 38-year-old publicly vowed not to retire despite a resounding loss to Joseph Parker in December, which in itself followed defeats at the hands of both Parker and Oleksandr Usyk.

Chisora, however, remains a big name on the British boxing scene and is said to have been approached by the Fury camp.

“He will struggle to get the Deontay Wilder fight that has been spoken about,” said Shalom to Sky Sports.

“Even Dillian Whyte struggled to get the Wilder fight.

“Hughie is the fight that makes sense for Chisora.

“The fans want to see this - they love Derek and they want to see Hughie tested.

“We have reached out again to Derek. We want the fight, Hughie wants it, Peter Fury wants it.

“It’s an exciting fight for us.”
