Dereck Chisora will take on American Kevin Johnson when he features alongside Tyson Fury at the Copper Box in London on February 15.

Fury defeated Johnson over a year ago and if Chisora follows suit the pair will then face off in what is likely to be an eliminator for the WBO heavyweight title.

Fury, who defeated and out-of-shape Chisora when they first clashed in 2011, will take on Argentine journeyman Gonzalo Basile next month - his first outing in almost a year following his odyssey with David Haye.

Johnson was undefeated when he was bossed by WBC champion Vitali Klitschko almost five years ago, but is little more than a gatekeeper to the top level these days.

Chisora is unbeaten in four fights since losing to Haye and serving a ban, picking up the (vacant) European title as well as the lightly regarded WBA and WBO international straps.
