Senad Gashi has promised to go to war with Dereck Chisora when the Heavyweight bad boys collide at The O2 in London this Saturday, live on Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN in the US.
Gashi (17-2, 17 KOs) returns to The O2 after he was stopped by Carlos Takam in seven rounds on the Whyte vs. Chisora 2 undercard in December. The heavy-hitting German hopes a win over Chisora will push his name towards title action in 2019.
“I definitely think I can win against Dereck Chisora,” said Gashi. “I have visualised this fight in my head many times. I have fought in my head 10 times against Dereck Chisora, nine times I won and one time I got disqualified.
“I’m going to make a great fight. I had a great training camp with my team and my coach. I’m going to give my best and the people are going to enjoy it for sure. I’m glad to be back in the UK and this time I’m going to get the win.
“I had just three days notice for my fight with Takam. But I had to grab the chance because it was a great opportunity to box in London against one of the best in the world and I had nothing to lose. I know I’m a warrior and I make every fight a war.”
Chisora vs. Gash is part of a huge night of boxing in the Capital.
