DEREK CHISORA is having such a nightmare hunting down Oleksandr Usyk-style sparring partners that David Haye is offering £1,000 for someone to chin him.

The heavyweight, 36, takes on the Ukraine superstar on Halloween as the big underdog, thanks to the southpaw’s Olympic 2012 gold and undisputed reign as world cruiserweight champion.

Chisora and Haye are finding it tough to get a sparring partner ahead of the Usyk fight

Usyk goes into his fight with Chisora as overwhelming favourite

Usyk’s freakish qualities have made it a problem for Del Boy and his financial advisor Haye to book suitable sparring.

So the Hayemaker posted an open invitation on Twitter on Tuesday – offering cash incentives for someone to walk in and chin his man.

Speaking after a recent pheasant hunt, Chisora said: “I am getting my fitness right.

“But sparring is hard because there is nobody out there who can spar like him, who can box and move like him.

“You just don’t know what to expect this guy to do in the ring.

“But I don’t think he is going to find it very easy to prepare for Derek Chisora.

“I haven’t been doing any of that juggling, mind-training stuff he does — that’s just for sissies.

“I like going shooting, hunting and killing stuff.”

Eddie Hearn’s Fight Camp garden shows have closed for the winter, so the Halloween bout needs an indoor venue.

Wembley Arena is the front runner for a string of high-profile fights and the area does have

a special place in the reformed bad boy’s heart – because it hosted his debut almost 14 years ago.

The Hampstead man said: “Wembley is only around the corner from my house, so it is really special.

“Wembley has changed so much since my debut there.

“It’s more like Madison Square Garden now, with the new England football ground and huge developments around the area.

“How different am I to the guy who made his debut there?

“I am a bit different in some ways, because I have white hairs on my chin I didn’t have back then.

“But I am a lot different in other ways because I am a dad now, I have matured a little bit.”

Chisora has done some wild things in the past to help sell tickets and boost his paydays.

But he has taken a whack to the wallet to get this thriller on for the fans who have supported him through his rollercoaster 32-9 career.

He added: “With everything that is happening in the world, you should be just happy for the chance to fight.

“I know a lot of fighters who cannot fight and are struggling.

“It’s something to look forward to and then people have the Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin rematch.

“Then it is Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev and then Christmas, so hopefully we kick off a happier period for everyone.

“It wasn’t about money, it was about getting back in the ring and doing what I love.”
