Vitali Klitschko will defend his WBC heavyweight title against Britain's Dereck Chisora in Munich on 18 February, according to Bild newspaper.
Klitschko told the German newspaper that Chisora, who lost to Robert Helenius in a split decision on 3 December, is "an interesting opponent. For me he clearly won the vacant European title fight against Helenius."
Bild said the 40-year-old Ukrainian wants to fight at least two bouts next year, before letting fans make a decision on his retirement. One of those could be a bout against David Haye in Germany in July.
Klitschko's younger brother Wladimir is the WBO, IBF and WBA champion after beating Haye in Hamburg last July. Haye has since retired but indicated he would like a shot at the older Klitschko brother.
