Chisora does not fear facing undefeated opponent Wilder

Dereck Chisora

Dereck Chisora says opponent Deontay Wilder's undefeated run holds no fear for him as he bids to succeed where Audley Harrison failed when the two meet at Wembley on 15 June.

Ex-British heavyweight champion Chisora returned to winning ways against Hector Alfredo Avila last month.

The 29-year-old lost two bouts in 2012 against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko and David Haye.

"I'm excited, I needed something like this to happen," he said.

"Now we will just have to wait and see on the night. I saw him when he first came on the scene and I told my trainer he would be a great opponent for me one day."

Wilder, 27, beat Harrison in the first round of their fight on 27 April, with the former Olympic champion retiring afterwards.

"I like a challenge. This is one of those great challenges and it is going to be a great fight for me. He isn't going to bring anything I haven't seen before. Has he boxed anyone with my style? I don't think so," added Chisora.

The undercard will also see Frankie Gavin face Denton Vassell for the British and Commonwealth welterweight championship and Liverpool duo Paul Smith and Tony Dodson for the vacant Great Britain super-middleweight championship.
