Dereck Chisora has his eyes set on becoming a world heavyweight champion as he will make the first defence of his European belt on November 30.

'Del Boy' defeated Edmund Garber by a unanimous decision to claim the vacant EBU title less than a fortnight ago, and overcame Malik Scott in July to take the WBO International crown.

Now, the 29-year-old will be headlining the show at London's Copper Box Arena - where Chisora beat Garber - at the end of November, promoter Frank Warren has confirmed, with a challenger yet to be announced.

However, Chisora insists his latest victories and future fights are leading up to becoming a heavyweight champion of the world.

"I said that I would be destroying these guys from now and that's what I've done in my last two fights," he said.

"The fans and media know what I can do, this is the new Del Boy and this time I'm on the road to win the world heavyweight title. I love fighting at the Copper Box Arena and this is my new home. Whoever I have in front of me on November 30 is getting destroyed."

Chisora is set to be ringside for WBO, IBF, WBA and IBO champion Wladimir Klitschko's fight on Saturday against Alexander Povetikin.
