AHEAD of his crucial 12-rounder with fellow British heavyweight veteran David Price at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday October 26, Dereck Chisora has revealed that he intends to spar with Anthony Joshua at the former unified world champion’s Sheffield training base.

At a media lunch held today (Friday October 11) on the banks of the River Thames, Chisora spoke of his plans to share a ring with Joshua, whose rematch with previous conqueror Andy Ruiz Jnr is scheduled for December 7 in Saudi Arabia.

“I’m gonna go see him next week,” the ex-world title challenger said. “He’s asked me a couple of times [before], but I told him I was too busy. But I’m gonna go see him next week for sparring. He’s tall [like Price], I’m short [like Ruiz].”
