THE EBU has ordered its heavyweight champion, Robert Helenius, to defend his title against Dereck Chisora, whom he outpointed in 2011.

After former titleholder Erkan Teper was handed a two-year ban for using banned substances, Helenius picked up the vacant belt earlier this month, capping off a successful 2015 for the Swede, who ended a two-year hiatus in March.

January 21 has been set as the deadline for purse bids for the rematch between Chisora and Helenius.
