What an evening of boxing we have in store here as Derek Chisora takes on fellow British heavyweight David Price at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday night. The venue will be packed to the rafters and there will be many more watching the live TV coverage offered by Sky Sports. Here are our top Derek Chisora v David Price betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
In addition to the main event, there’s also a strong undercard that is lead by Regis Prograis v Josh Taylor. As well as a world title unification bout, that one also serves as the final of the Muhammad Ali Trophy and World Boxing Super Series. This really is a treat for followers of the noble art.
Chisora was originally scheduled to fight former world champion Joe Parker over 12 rounds. However, the former was forced to pull out, leaving a void. It was a concern handlers would bring in a lesser opponent who would roll over at the first sign of trouble. However, Matchroom Boxing and Hayemaker Promotions did the unexpected. They used their opportunity to set up an event more exciting fight involving two men coming in on the back of impressive wins.
A Night to Remember
Del Boy was last seen stopping Artur Szpilka inside two rounds at this very venue, a man who was expected to drag him into deep water. Price recorded a career-saving victory over Dave Allen when boxing his way to a 10th round stoppage. This has all the ingredients of a cracker and appeals to both avid and casual boxing fans.
