Boxing: Dereck Chisora facing Swiss brawl with Arnold Gjergjaj


Dereck Chisora will make the first defence of his European heavyweight title against Switzerland’s Arnold Gjergjaj, at the Copper Box Arena in London on 30 November.

Chisora won the vacant title with a fifth-round stoppage of Edmund Gerber at the same venue last month and victory over Gjergjaj would extend his current winning run to four fights.

The 29-year-old Gjergjaj has won all 22 of his professional bouts, including his last nine by stoppage, but has fought outside Switzerland on only one previous occasion.
