Frank Warren believes Dereck Chisora will have to be at his best to overcome undefeated American Malik Scott at Wembley Arena tomorrow night.
Chisora takes on the Philadelphia heavyweight who has drawn once in the only blemish to his 36-fight professional career.
And Warren is under no illusion about the challenge facing the British heavyweight.
“It’s a tough fight for him,” he said.
“Scott’s undefeated, he a slick boxer, he’s smart and he hasn’t come over here thinking he’s going to lose.
“He’s fit and his trainer Jesse Reid has trained 22 world champions I think so it’s going be a tough, tough, night for Dereck.”
Warren feels this is a fight that 29–year-old Chisora cannot afford to lose, but believes the Finchley fighter is in the best shape of his career.
“For the first time in many fights he has come in and trained well,” said Warren.
“He’s fit, not carrying excess weight and he’s not been doing silly things outside the ring, so we’re going to see the best of Dereck Chisora I hope.”
Chisora has the weight advantage for the heavyweight showdown but his opponent wasn’t fazed ahead of his fight debut in London
“It’s going to be a great night of boxing,” said Smith
“I hate to say it, but I’m in the best shape of my life because I’m always in great shape.
“Chisora is not on my level and I’m going to show that tomorrow and I’m looking forward to staying undefeated.”
