Derek Chisora has warned Oleksandr Usyk he is the strongest Heavyweight in the world and insists it will take something special to halt him.

Chisora and Usyk will finally lock horns on October 31 in a rescheduled clash, with unbeaten pound-for-pound star Usyk a victory away from securing a WBO mandatory shot at unified world champion, Anthony Joshua.

However, Chisora says former undisputed Cruiserweight champion, Usyk, who fights for the second time since moving up to Heavyweight will face a stronger proposition than Joshua, Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder.

“I am not losing. I’m going all out, guns blazing,” Chisora told Sky Sports.

“I’ll go through this man. Whatever he has got, he’ll need more to stop me.

“I don’t think, in the heavyweight game, there is anybody stronger than me right now.

“Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder? No, they aren’t stronger than me.

 

“I’m stronger, crazier and I want it more.”

Chisora has won three on the bounce since suffering an eleventh round knockout defeat to Dillian Whyte in 2018, including a fourth round stoppage over David Price last October.

And the 36-year-old, former world title challenger says despite a win putting him on course for a showdown with Joshua, he’d prefer to face Fury for a third time, following two losses to the now WBC world champion.

“Tyson is unbelievable – the only man who doesn’t have a defeat on his record,” Chisora added.

“It would be a great fight with the ‘Gypsy King’ because he has always promised me a third fight. He owes me it.

“We speak every day, he always says he wants to give me that fight.”
