How to watch Usyk vs Chisora

Virgin Media Staff

Forget fright night, it’s all about fight night this Halloween as Olexsandr Usyk and Dereck Chisora face off in a crucial heavyweight battle. You can watch all the action live from Wembley this weekend with Virgin TV.

Usyk is looking to extend his unbeaten record and claim 18 wins from as many fights as he seeks a heavyweight showdown against Anthony Joshua in the New Year. The Ukranian, recently converted from cruiserweight to heavyweight, is the mandatory challenger to Joshua’s IBF world title. He made light work of Chazz Wetherspoon in his heavyweight debut last October. A commanding win here will strengthen calls for that fight to happen, but Chisora will aim to put a stop to that. He’s an experienced, heavy hitting battler, and presents Usyk’s toughest challenge at this level, sparking thoughts of potential upset.

Usyk vs Chisora is the main event as a thrilling night of boxing hosts a number of great match-ups on the undercard:

  • Oleksandr Usyk v Dereck Chisora
  • Lee Selby v George Kambosos
  • Tommy McCarthy v Bilal Laggoune – for vacant EBU European Cruiser Title
  • Savannah Marshall v Hannah Rankin – for vacant WBO Middleweight Title
  • Amy Timlin v Carly Skelly – for vacant Commonwealth Super Bantamweight Title
  • David Allen v Christopher Lovejoy
  • Ukashir Farooq v Martin Tecyuapetla
