Six years after their first meeting a pair of charismatic heavyweights meet again in the ring as Derek Chisora takes on Kubrat Pulev tonight in London.

Some fans have pleaded with the Brit to retire, but Chisora insists he still wants to challenge himself against the best heavyweights and will look to break his losing streak against Pulev tonight.

Quotes corner

Derek Chisora: “It’s all the same talk to be honest, I’ve trained harder, hit the bag harder, sparred harder and done everything harder. I’ve had 45 fights and it’s the same chat. I just want to fight. We can all sit here and say ‘I’ve trained hard, this is going very well’ but it doesn’t matter for me.

“I just want to put my gumshield and gloves on, walk to the ring and fight. I’m just excited for Saturday. My whole point right now is to be in big fights, entertain the crowd and do what I like do, it makes me happy.”

Kubrat Pulev: “Sometimes people talk too much like Derek but don’t believe in themselves. I don’t talk so much but I’m real, honest and I speak the truth. Me and my team had amazing preparations in Bulgaria, it was very hard training and we are ready for the rematch.

“For the people, it’s going to be a very interesting fight, it has history and now we will see who is better than before. My style is a bit different to Derek’s, it’s very precise. I have a lot of power and energy, every round is going to be difficult for Derek Chisora.”
