UK start time, date, live stream, where to watch on pay-per-view and undercard for tonight’s huge heavyweight fight
Oleksandr Usyk and Dereck Chisora go head-to-head in London in a blockbuster heavyweight fight on Halloween tonight.
Usyk is aiming to break into the elite division after clearing up at cruiserweight having beaten America’s Chazz Witherspoon last October on his heavyweight debut.
The Ukrainian, the former undisputed cruiserweight champion, is regarded as one of the best around and is looking to set up a title fight with either Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury in the near future.
But ‘Del Boy’ has enjoyed a resurgence since losing to Dillian Whyte in December 2018 and beat David Price last time out so will be no pushover.

Usyk vs Chisora: What has been said?
David Haye has warned Usyk he will be fighting the very best possible version of Chisora.
“You’re going to see a Dereck Chisora like you’ve never seen before,” Haye, who manages his former rival, told talkSPORT.
“Every round of sparring has been 100 per cent. He has been trying to knock everybody out from the first round.
”His sparring partners have been paid an additional £1000 if they can knock Dereck Chisora down. They have been trying every round.
“We have had six sparring partners ready, fresh, two rounds in and keep rotating sparring partners just to put the absolute heat on Dereck Chisora in preparation for this mega fight – and he has absorbed it.
“He has become so battle hardened, so strong, so focused that he is a going to cause one of the biggest upsets ever on British soil in the heavyweight division.
“This is a life and death fight for Dereck Chisora. He knows that. He has lost nine fights. Versus someone who has never lost. On paper, Dereck Chisora has got no chance of winning.
“But I am telling you Dereck Chisora is going to cause an upset of epic proportions and nobody will see it coming. Usyk has picked the wrong guy.”
