What they said
Dereck Chisora: “I will make sure that when Usyk gets out of that ring he knows he has been in a fight.
“He wants to claim he is at the top of the food chain, but if he wants to do that he needs to box a true heavyweight.
“It’s a fight – the guy is going to chuck the kitchen sink at me.
“The fight sells itself – he is a good fighter and is loved by the English fans. Even people who don’t like boxing love watching him and he’s fighting myself.
“There is nothing bad about this fight, there’s not hatred, it’s all about the love for the sport.”
