Dereck Chisora will face Vitali Klitschko in February after beating fellow Londoner David Haye to a clash with the WBC heavyweight champion.

Reports emerged in recent days that the Finchley fighter, who lost a controversial split decision to Robert Helenius in a European title challenge earlier this month, was being lined up to meet the 40-year-old Ukrainian.

The news was confirmed this evening by German broadcaster RTL, with Chisora taking on Klitschko in Munich on 18 February.
