Matchroom Boxing have announced Betfred as the official title partner for Oleksandr Usyk’s highly-anticipated heavyweight clash with Dereck Chisora at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday October 31, shown live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and DAZN in the US.

Pound-for-pound star Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) made the move to heavyweight after dominating at cruiserweight, winning all of the major belts in an extraordinary spell that saw him crowned the undisputed champion.

The 2012 Olympic Gold medalist is determined to become a two-weight champion but first faces Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs) who is coming into this fight off the back of KO wins over Artur Szpilka and David Price.

Fred Done, Owner of Betfred, said: “We enjoy a fantastic relationship with Barry Hearn’s Matchroom Sport through our sponsorship of snooker and darts, so I am delighted to be joining up with Matchroom Boxing for what should be a superb heavyweight clash.”

Eddie Hearn, Managing Director of Matchroom Sport, said: “Betfred have been a huge supporter of Matchroom events over the years, especially through their world championship snooker partnership and I am delighted to welcome them onboard for this huge fight next week, and look forward to delivering them unprecedented global exposure and a thrilling night for Betfred and fight fans around the world.”
