Chisora is expected to put his European heavyweight title on the line against the 30-year-old, who has won all 24 of his fights but has fought just once previously outside his homeland.

Chisora scored four straight knockout wins in 2013 and is keen to press his claims for a match against world champion Wladimir Klitschko this year.

Chisora said: "Let this be the year that I get an opportunity at the world heavyweight title and bring it back to Britain.

"Rudenko is a great start to the year for me. He's a strong, powerful and undefeated challenger who's got his own ambitions for the world title and will be coming over here to knock me out."
