EDDIE HEARN supported his senior Derek Chisora to BEAT former WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder.
And his Chamber promoter is convinced the veteran can land a big win over the knockout expert.
Talking to Boxing on the field, Hearn said: “I believe Chisora, if she gets through three or four rounds, can really beat Deontay Wilder.
“He’s going to accept the fight with Wilder and it’s a good fight for Wilder.”
Last week, Chisora admitted that he likes the idea of fighting Wilder later this year.
In an appearance on talkSPORT, Chisora said, “I’m open to anything – I love fighting.”

Chisora’s willingness to take on Wilder stems from his eagerness to share the ring with all the big names of his generation.
He continued: “What most people don’t understand is that some people want to have the perception of being a boxer on Instagram.
“I’m not that guy. I want to be the guy that when I sit down and people look at my résumé, I want to say, ‘You know what, I fought everyone.’
“I don’t want people to decide for me, I make my own decisions and I’m happy with my decision.
“So if I have to fight Deontay Wilder, if I have to fight someone, if I have to fight an American, I don’t care. I will fight.”
Hearn has also previously stated that he loves the idea of a showdown between two heavyweight boxers, saying: “Deontay Wilder, we’d love to see you back in the ring. I’ve got the perfect guy for you – Derek Chisora.
“Come on, he’s coming up a little bit, now he’s beaten three games. The fight returned easy for Deontay Wilder. Derek is ready. ”
