The boxing promoter was speaking after Chisora’s stunning eight-round knockout win over Carlos Takam on Saturday night
Dereck Chisora is ready to go and fight WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in America, according to Delboy’s promoter Eddie Hearn.
Delboy launched himself back into world title contention with a stunning eighth-round knockout victory over Carlos Takam at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.
Hearn has been locked in negotiations to get Wilder to fight Anthony Joshua for months and although the two could meet for a showdown in April, it does not seem guaranteed.
The managing director of Matchroom Sport has even declared a possible rematch between Joshua and Dillian Whyte could be on the cards if the Joshua/Wilder fight falls through.
But Hearn also said he would do everything he could to get Wilder to fight Chisora too.
Hearn told IFL: “I’d like to see Chisora fight Wilder, why not?
“Maybe he thinks he’ll beat Chisora. I’ll make him an offer, I’ll leave an email this week.
“We’ll do it in America, he needs a fight.”
“You can’t ignore me. You may think I’m a p**** and you may hate me.
“But if I’m overpaying you and putting you on nights like this, no one puts on nights like this.”

Former heavyweight champ Tyson Fury – who beat Delboy in 2011 and 2014 – also backed the campaign to give Chisora the chance to wrap a strip of gold around his waist.
Fury said: “I would be the first to back him in a world title fight.
“I’ll back the campaign, let’s get a campaign going where we get Dereck Chisora a world heavyweight championship around his waist.
“The guy deserves it, he’s a warrior, he’ll fight anybody, he’s been on the road, he’s fought the best in the world, he’s still going – even when people write him off.”
