In nine days Derek Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs) will face Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) in a heavyweight clash, which is expected to be a real test for the Ukrainian pugilist.

The British boxer believes that the recent loss of Vasyl Lomachenko has showcased potential problems that Usyk might face in their upcoming bout, Sky Sports reports.

"I do not know, because you have to understand Lomachenko thrives on boxing behind a crowd and stuff like that. This time he boxed behind about 25 people. By the time he realised it was happening, he was losing the fight, and I think me and Oleksandr, we like the crowd as well. We are going to have to find another way of boosting ourselves up when it is the later rounds, the money rounds," Chisora said.

Nevertheless, he understands the task in front of him and respects his opponent's skills and abilities.

"He is like the best, a pound-for-pound fighter. He is a great fighter, I am a big fan of his. Boxes in and out, moving around, and he is a good dancer. It is going to be hard," the Brit stated.

As we reported earlier, Vasyl Lomachenko lost to Teofimo Lopez Jr. via unanimous decision.
