Dereck Chisora is confident a new diet will set him back on the path to the top of the heavyweight tree.

Chisora is battling to get his career back on track following defeats at the hands of Robert Helenius, Vitali Klitschko and David Haye. He secured a victory over Hector Alfredo Avila in April, but he was far from impressive and his weight - he tipped the scales at 18 stone - was a talking point.

The 29-year-old is aware of the weight issue and has sought out help on his diet as he prepares for a fight with Malik Scott at Wembley Arena on July 20.

"I am feeling great and my new diet is bringing the weight off," Chisora told the Sun. "I have no idea what the diet is.

"I go and see this company, they put me on a machine, do tests and then deliver the food and I eat it."
