How to watch Oleksandr Usyk vs Derek Chisora: TV channel and live stream

Oleksandr Usyk knows he is one win away from fighting for a heavyweight world title – but Derek Chisora will not lie down and make it easy.

Chisora is the only man standing in the way of Usyk challenging for either Anthony Joshua’s world titles, or the vacant WBO belt if Joshua opts to vacate.

Usyk, the former undisputed cruiserweight world champion, is fighting for just the second time at heavyweight following his win over Chazz Witherspoon 12 months ago.

And if he can produce a demolition job on Chisora, he will announce himself as a major player in boxing’s premier division.

Oleksandr Usyk is aiming to be a heavyweight king before becoming Hollywood royalty.

The Ukrainian superstar takes on Brit basher Derek Chisora tonight in his second fight at heavyweight.

Usyk, 33, has already become undisputed cruiserweight champion but now he is mandatory for Anthony Joshua’s WBO title in boxing’s glamour division.

But when he is finished conquering this sport then he has dreams of becoming a movie star.

The London 2012 Olympic gold medallist has already starred in a couple of Ukrainian flicks.

While he turned down a role in Rocky spin-off Creed 2 despite being personally asked by Sylvester Stallone as he wants to focus on his ring career for now.

“As long as I am motivated to get up at 5am to train and work hard, I will box,” he said.

“The moment I feel I don’t want to get out of bed, I will start thinking about finishing my boxing career and starting on my Hollywood movie career.”

Usyk certainly has the character for it and has enjoyed building this fight with funny social media videos calling out Chisora.

That is without even being able to speak English.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has certainly enjoyed it and reckons the Ukrainian will be perfect for a film career after seeing him up close before he fought Tony Bellew in 2018.

“Usyk is so fascinating, he is a star, made for movies,” said Hearn.

“The social media numbers around him – even when he is just dancing – are mad.

“People moan about Canelo and Gennady Golovkin and Vasiliy Lomachenko not selling fights, in the UK and America, because they don’t speak English but here you have a guy who doesn’t even need to – it adds to his mystery.

“He is a very deep thinker, Tony Bellew really liked him before their fight and Derek Chisora does too, that is so rare.”
