The most 3 most notable bouts of the day take place in the "Copper Box" in London. The most notable of those bouts will see former Heavyweight title challengers colliding as Dereck Chisora (19-4, 13) takes on Kevin Johnson (29-4-1, 14). For Johnson this is almost certainly "last chance saloon" having lost 3 of his last 6. Unfortunately for Johnson though Chisora is the type of fighter who is likely to beat him without too many issues. Johnson's laziness will be punished by the always busy Chisora who should cruise to a clear decision.
If Chisora, as expected, defeats Johnson he'll, get the a chance to avenge his first professional defeat, a decision loss to Tyson Fury (21-0, 15), that is if Fury himself can defeat the hard hitting but limited Joey Abell (29-7, 28). Abell is a big puncher but very rudimentary and Fury should be able to pick him apart with speed, skills and size.
Fury v Chisora, if both men come through this unscathed, is expected to be made for their next fight with the bout effectively made as a world title eliminator. Both men are highly ranked and the winner would be deserving of a world title fight even though Fury did beat Chisora decisively in their first meeting.
The third Heavyweight bout on this card sees youngster Hughie Fury (12-0, 7) taking on American Matthew Greer (16-11, 13). As with Abell, Greer does have a hefty whack on him when he connects but Greer has been stopped in 3 of his last 4 and 5 of his last 7 and really shouldn't go the distance with Fury if Hughie is anywhere near as good as advertised.
Hughie Fury isn't the only notable young prospect in action as Sweden's young Otto Wallin (5-0, 3) takes on the experienced Ladislav Kovarik (10-15, 5). Kovarik is very limited and has won just 2 of his last 14 bouts and lasted just 97 seconds with Hughie Fury. Wallin, who has gone the distance in his last 2 bouts, will be looking to out-do Fury and get this one over very quickly.
Of course, not all unbeaten fighters are "prospects" and you'd have to be clueless to describe the 37 year old Jens Tietze (2-0, 2) as a prospect. Tietze will attempt to extend his winning run to 3-0 though is taking on a yet to be named foe so we expect it to be a very limited opponent.
As well as the trio of bouts in England with the Fury's and Chisora, there is also a trio of contests in Kansas. The most notable of which sees the hard hitting Donovan Dennis (7-0, 6) taking on novice John Orr (1-1) in what should be little more than another record padding victory for Dennis who some view as one of the hidden gems of American boxing.
Dennis isn't the only unbeaten Heavyweight on this show as Cooper Sanders (1-0, 1) takes on the debuting Charles Rogers (0-0) and Eric Cason (2-0, 2) battles Charles Ellis (7-1-1, 6) . Although Cason/Ellis was the last bout we mentioned from this American can we do expect it will be the best of the bunch.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo we're expecting to see Rocky Kalenga (2-2, 2) in action, albeit against a yet to be named opponent. Kalenga will be fighting for the Vacant Democratic Republic of Congo Heavyweight Title if his bout goes ahead though there are worries that it won't.
Unfortunately when it comes to Kalenga, we're wondering the same thing as most, is he related to French based Cruiserweight Youri Kayembre Kalenga, unfortunately we're unsure.
