Oleksandr Usyk collides with Derek Chisora in a crucial fight relating to the heavyweight landscape.

The Ukrainian was initially slated to meet the Briton in May, but the coronavius pandemic forced the fight to be rearranged.

Usyk is risking his status as the WBO’s mandatory challenger for Anthony Joshua’s world heavyweight title, a highly-lucrative fight.

Chisora was last in action last October when he stopped David Price in four rounds, while Usyk's only action in the sport's top division was also more than a year ago against Chazz Witherspoon, with victory coming as a result of the American retiring after seven rounds.

Here’s everything you need to know about the fight.
