Dereck Chisora remains confident that a heavyweight rematch with Dillian Whyte will happen and is willing to work with his British rival's promoter Eddie Hearn.
Chisora is eager to avenge his split decision points defeat to Whyte, who returns to action on the Terence Crawford-Julius Indongo bill in Nebraska on August 20, live on Sky Sports.

Hearn has admitted that Whyte-Chisora II could still be staged this year and 'Del Boy' believes he will get the chance to inflict a crushing knockout on the Brixton man in a second fight.
I'm going to destroy that guy. I'm going to batter him from corner to corner.
"The rematch is going to happen," Chisora told Sky Sports. "The world is going to have to see the rematch.
"I'm going to destroy that guy. I'm going to batter him from corner to corner. I'm not even joking, I'm going to destroy him. I'm going to have to knock him out.
"I just want to fight. It will be a great fight. Dillian is going to come to fight, I'm going to come to fight - it's going to be exciting.
"I would relish that fight, I would love that fight, I would take that fight any time."
Whyte insists he would welcome another grudge fight with Chisora, provided that he is offered suitable financial terms.
"It can happen, but the problem is Dereck Chisora doesn't know how to negotiate or do good business," Whyte told Sky Sports. "Yes, the fight can happen. All Eddie has to do is pay me and look after me the way I deserve to be treated.
I've already tried to make the fight twice with Chisora already, but for some reason he does nothing, so I don't know
"I've beaten Chisora already. The only reason I would fight him again is if the money is right. If they are willing to pay me the right amount of money and I'm given the right deal then I would fight him tomorrow.
"I've already tried to make the fight twice with Chisora already, but for some reason he does nothing, so I don't know."
Chisora confirmed his recent talks with Hearn and could target the American duo of Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller and WBC champion Deontay Wilder if he does not receive the Whyte rematch.

Chisora said: "Eddie called me the other day, we've spoken a little bit, and he goes 'let's work together,' so yeah why not? If we work together and everything is good, we're down for it.
"I want to fight all the American fighters. If I could fight 'Big Baby', yes I would fight him. If I could fight Deontay Wilder, I'm up for it. I want to fight everybody out there."
