Dereck Chisora has gotten lost a little bit amidst the big boom of heavyweight boxing. He will fight on the weekend to keep himself relevant and this is on the undercard of Dillian Whyte’s bout against Oscar Rivas at the O2 in London. Del Boy is the heavy odds-on favourite to collect the win against Artur Szpilka.

Will Chisora beat Szpilka?

The last time that Chisora was in the ring was against Germany’s Senad Gashi back in April and that was after Del Boy’s bruising defeat against Dillian Whyte last December. The career record of Chisora is now W30 L9 and at 35 years old, his chances at the top of the sport are fading away. This will be his fifth fight in a row at the O2 Arena.

Either in 6 – 10 Round Group Betting



There have been changes in the Chisora camp as he now has a new trainer Dave Coldwell. The fight against Gashi was their first bout. It was a comfortable points win for Chisora on the night but it was a really poor fight. Gashi just avoided his opponent as much as he could and Chisora didn’t have the craft or guile to find a way to hurt the German much. Hopefully, this one turns out to be a better fight.

Can The Pin knockdown Del Boy?

Polish boxer Artur Szpilka has faced some pretty handy opponents in the last few years. He’s gone up a giants Bryant Jennings, Ty Cobb, Tomasz Adamek and Deontay Wilder. Looking back to his duel with the Bronze Bomber, Szpilka made life quite comfortable for Wilder as he used his feet really well. Sziplka was chinned in the ninth round though after letting his guard down and getting into the close. Tiredness had crept in.

He was hurt badly and was stretchered away from the ring. The fight against Wilder was for the WBC heavyweight crown. The 30-year old’s career record is at W22 L3. The Polish pugilist has won his last two fights, a unanimous decision against Dominick Guinn and then a split decision against Mariusz Wach.


Will Chisora win? Probably. Is this likely to be a spectacular fight? Probably not. Sziplka hasn’t got the power that Chisora has, but he seems to be decent enough with his evasive manoeuvres. Chisora was really poor against Gashi a few months ago. We have to go with Chsiroa on points at 13/8* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 17th, 2019 at 7:12 pm)
