According to various sources, Derek Chisora net worth is an estimated $8.5 million – with most of those earnings coming directly from boxing.

If there is money to be made, you know Chisora will be up for a scrap. A big personality in the sport, Del Boy has earned his opportunity to push for a large pay day.

While this figure is relatively low compared to Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, Chisora has made a living from his exploits in the boxing ring.


According to internet sources, Derek Chisora is currently single. He certainly tries to keep his private life behind closed doors these days.

Chisora was previously dating Iranian-born Yalda Kontrachty but that relationship ended on a sour note in November 2010.

Reports state that Chisora has a daughter with an unnamed woman. She resides at Del Boy’s north London home but details regarding the mother are unknown.

Usyk vs Chisora

One of the fights of the year, Chisora and Oleksandr Usyk went to war in October 2020 and it was a titanic battle from start to finish.

While Chisora started quickly, he couldn’t quite put Usyk to the canvas and the Ukrainian fighter started to take control as the bout went on.

Chisora took Usyk the distance but fell short on all three judges’ scorecards – a fair result given how the fight went. With 10 professional defeats to his name, Chisora may be waiting some time for another shot at a high-profile fighter.

Price vs Chisora

Two of the most dominant British fighters in the heavyweight boxing weight classes, Price and Chisora went toe to toe at the O2 Arena in October 2019.

While you could claim that both men fall just short of world champion level, Chisora and Price are heavyweight journeymen and the former put on a fantastic show.

Chisora unleashed a devastating blow in the fourth round to clinch an early stoppage – much to the delight of Del Boy’s fans across the country.


Derek Chisora was born on 29th December 1983. At the time of writing, he is 37 years old.

Chisora and his family moved to London when he was 16 years old before making his professional boxing debut at just 23.


Chisora is as vocal on social media as he is in press conferences and he can be credited with some of the greatest boxing quotes of all-time.

Del Boy doesn’t hold back with his views and he is capable of landing a devastating verbal blow that can put his rival on the back foot before they even step into the ring.
