And the prospect of mixing it up with the former major WBC heavyweight titleholder is something that gets Del Boy excited.

During an appearance on talkSPORT, Chisora ​​said: “I’m ready for anything – I love to fight.”

Chisora’s desire to face knockout artist Wilder stems from her eagerness to share the ring with all the big names of her generation.

He continued: “What most people don’t understand is that some people want the notion of being a boxer on Instagram.

“I’m not that guy. I want to be that guy that when I sit down and everyone looks at my resume, I want to say, ‘You know, I fought everybody.’

“I don’t want to let people decide for me, I decide for myself and am happy with the decisions I make.

“So if I have to fight Deontay Wilder, if I have to fight anybody, if I have to fight an American, I don’t care. I will fight.”

Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn likes the idea of ​​a dust-and-middle between two heavy hitters, telling DAZN recently: “Deontay Wilder, we want to see you back in the ring.

“I have the perfect guy for you – Derek Chisora.

“Come on, he’s moving a little bit, he’s coming in from three losses on spin now.

“Easy comeback fight for Deontay Wilder. Derek is ready.”

But fan favorite Chisora ​​will have to find herself a new head coach if she accepts a clash with the Bronze Bomber as trainer Dave Coldwell is flat against the bout.

He told talkSPORT: “It’s not something I want to see. I think it’s a very tough night for him.

“Derek’s Derek and he’ll do what he wants to do. It doesn’t matter what anyone says, it’s just how he’s been throughout his career.

“When it comes down to, ‘Does he fight again or doesn’t he fight again?’

“Yeah, he’ll listen to people’s advice when it comes to opponents and things like that, but Derek wants to fight some people.

“If he wants fights, they will be. If I had my way, he wouldn’t fight Deontay Wilder, that’s for sure.”
