A fascinating heavyweight blockbuster is currently in the works, according to numerous reports from UK and US. Former unified heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz might be facing former title challenger Derek Chisora later this year.
Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn said that he has made an offer to Premier Boxing Champions, but they declined his initial offer, as they want a better money split and purse for “El Destroyer”.
Ruiz Jr., 32, hasn’t fought since May 2021 when he defeated Chris Arreola via UD after a 18 months hiatus from the ring.
Chisora, 38, is on a three-fight losing streak and another L will push him towards retirement. “WAR” was last seen inside the ring this past December when he lost the rematch against Joseph Parker.
