Derek Chisora’s trainer Dave Coldwell has dismissed Eddie Hearn’s suggestion that the British heavyweight should fight Deontay Wilder next.
The 37-year-old is making a comeback after three consecutive losses after being dismissed twice by Alexander Usyk and against Joseph Parker.
But Del Boy is refusing to give time on his career as he says he will be back in the ring for his 45th bout next summer.
Matchroom promoter Hearn believes Chisora should face Wilder in 2022, labeling the dust-up as an ‘easy comeback fight’ for the bronze bomber.
The 36-year-old Wilder has lost his last two matches, both to Tyson Fury, with his most recent defeat coming in October.
Hearn told the DAZN boxing show: “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 from three losses on spin now.
“Easy comeback fight for Deontay Wilder. Derek is ready.”
But Chisora’s trainer isn’t a fan of the potential encounter, as she took to social media to downplay the fight.
coldwell tweeted: “Christmas is over. Eddie needs to put Sherry away for another year.”
Hearn has previously supported Chisora to defeat Wilder, who is contemplating retirement, but only if the bout exceeds four rounds.
He added: “All of Chisora’s losses have come at the elite level, and Wilder is at the elite level.
“Listen, Chisora can beat Wilder. If he hits her with a big shot…
“Let me tell you what, if that fight goes beyond round four, Chisora wins that fight.
“But he has to get the last four rounds and it’s going to be really dangerous against someone who punches hard like Wilder.”
