Dereck Chisora v Artur Szpilka – For what feels like the 100th time, Eddie Hearn has wheeled out Dereck Chisora for a domestic fight night.

Chisora was brutally laid out by Whyte last December in a proper, old fashioned slugfest, but his bout with tricky Polish southpaw Artur Szpilka will be a very different affair.

Del Boy is the 4/9 favourite on Saturday, but Szpilka is slick, and caused Deontay Wilder some serious issues when they fought in 2016 (before Wilder eventually knocked him out), and looks a fairly generous price at 11/4.

This one could be a bit of a snoozefest, as Szpilka is something of a spoiler, and evens for the fight to go the distance looks a solid bet.

Dave Allen v David Price

Perhaps the most intriguing fight of the card is a domestic dust-up between Dave Allen and David Price. Though Price towers over Allen, the Doncaster De La Hoya is the betting favourite at 4/9, as the bookies believe his chin will hold up against an expected early barrage from his 6ft8 opponent.

Price, whose last fight ended in bizarre fashion after Kash Ali was disqualified for biting, will know defeat on Saturday may well be a career-ender, and 15/8 suggests the bookies aren’t certain his chin and gas tank, which have been exposed on numerous occasions in the past, will hold up.

Expect a knockout in this one, as the fight is priced at 1/16 to end before the final bell.
