Heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder will be back fighting in England one month prior to his scheduled court date in Las Vegas for domestic assault charges.

Wilder’s next fight has been set for June 15 against Derrick Chisora, according to The Daily Mail. The two will meet at London’s Wembley Arena less than three weeks before Wilder has to return to Las Vegas for a court hearing on July 3. He was arrested for domestic battery charges by strangulation early on May 4 before being released on $15,000 bond.

Chisora began his career 13-0 before losing four of his past six fights. Two of those were title fights against David Haye and Vitali Klitschko. His last trip to the ring came against Argentinian Hector Alfredo Avila, a nine-round TKO on April 21.

Wilder defeated another British boxer on April 20 when he KO’d Audley Harrison in 70 seconds. The result caused Harrison to announce his retirement shortly after the fight.

The win moved Wilder’s career record to 28-0 and he talked about the fight with The Game two days before his arrest.
