Promoter Frank Warren says he is "quite sure" he can set up a fight between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury.

Warren first hinted at a possible rematch earlier in the month, with the showdown likely to be held at West Ham United's Upton Park in June.

"Except for [reigning WBA, IBF and WBO champion] Wladimir Klitschko, they are the two best heavyweights in Europe, maybe the world," Warren said.

"I'm quite sure I can get a final eliminator for the WBO between Dereck and Tyson."

The pair are on the same bill at the Copper Box Arena, east London, on February 15. Chisora will face American Kevin Johnson, with Fury taking on Argentinean Gonzalo Omar Basile on the undercard.

Chisora and Fury first met at Wembley Arena three years ago, with Fury winning on points.
