Del Boy, 38, has lost his last three fights inside the ring – once against Unified Champion Alexander Usik and twice against New Zealand’s Banger Parker.

Meanwhile, Wilder, who teased retirement in December, is coming back after two knockout defeats at the hands of Tyson Fury.

And Hearn believes Chisora ​​would be the ‘perfect’ next opponent for the Alabama native, as he described her as an ‘easy comeback fight’.

He 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 bit, he’s now coming off three losses on spin. Easy comeback fight for Deontay Wilder. Derek is ready.”

Chisora’s trainer Coldwell immediately took to social media following her comments where she asked the matchroom promoter to ‘keep Sherry away’.

And Coldwell has since announced that he will refuse to help the former WBC king fight Chisora ​​if he decides to cast his wits against her.

Asked by talkSPORT if he would help train Chisora ​​for a potential dust-up, he said: “No, no, no. It’s not something I want to see. I think it’s his It’s a very tough night.

“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?’ Yes, 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.”

Instead, Coldwell would like to see Wilder engage in a blockbuster encounter against his British star, Anthony Joshua.

He commented: “No matter how many losses these two guys have on the record – AJ vs. Wilder is always going to be a fight that people always want to see.

“We look at the UFC, people don’t really talk about records in the UFC.

“They talk about, ‘Will this be a good fight?’ And then when there’s a fight, ‘Was it the good fight?’

“It’s not so much, ‘He’s won it and he’s lost,’ it’s not so much about him.

“It’s something that I think boxing leaves behind, where we’re intent on giving so much importance to records. When a fighter is beaten it’s ‘done’ and it’s ‘finished’ Is.

“These are fighters. Fighters want to fight. And when they have something to give, people always want to see them.”

“Deontay Wilder can punch, he’s exciting, and he showed that he’s got the toughness about him to get into some great fights.”
