Heavyweight Dereck Chisora (25-6, 17 KOs) returns to the ring on September 10 with an eight-round contest against Drazan Janjanin (13-7, 12 KOs) at the Hovet in Stockholm. The former British, Commonwealth and European Champion is the latest addition to a card in the Swedish capital topped by the female grudge match between domestic rivals Mikaela Laurén and Klara Svensson.
After losing via split decision to Kubrat Pulev in May, Chisora is picking up the pieces with a keep-busy contest against Janjanin. “This is the fight game,” said Chisora. “If you lose, you have to rebuild and come back. I lost a close fight to Pulev, but I’m still in a good position. I want a rematch, but let’s see if they give it to me. Either way, there are a lot big fights out there for me, and I’m ready to fight anyone.”
