Chisora: I'm Going To Burn Whyte Up, Stop Joshua Rematch!

By Elliot Foster

Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora will meet in a rematch before the end of the year.

The pair clashed back in December 2016 at Manchester Arena, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office, with the current WBC Silver champion Whyte coming out on top.

There has been noises of a return outing since the day after the first clash –– and it was finally confirmed on Thursday for December 22.

Whyte, fresh from his win against former WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker at the O2 Arena in London back in July, will come up against Chisora at the same venue, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and on DAZN Stateside.

Chisora was last in action on the same bill as Whyte's win over Parker when he produced a career-best display to stop former world title challenger Carlos Takam inside eight rounds.

“This is going to be the donkey’s final destination,” said Whyte –– who was hit by a table hurled by David Haye-managed Chisora in the build-up to their first fight –– when the news was confirmed. “This will be Chisora’s last fight, the donkey’s last ride. I think that he needs to really have a good think about taking this fight because he’s going to be heading home after the fight looking like he’s been run over by a truck.

"I believe that I’ll knock him out in devastating fashion this time. Last time was my first 12-rounder and I was a little bit inexperienced but this time I’ll know exactly what to do. He’s at the end of the road."

Chisora will be determined to derail 'The Body Snatcher's' plans to take on WBO, IBF, WBA Super and IBO world champion Anthony Joshua next year, with the promoter of Whyte, Eddie Hearn, revealing that the Brixton man is the frontrunner to face the former Olympic champion at Wembley Stadium on April 13 if the unification fight against WBC king Deontay Wilder fails to materialise.

“I’m not messing, I’m not playing at boxing," said Chisora, who recently signed a managerial deal with his old foe David Haye under the Hayemaker Boxing banner. "Dillian has spent the last two years avoiding getting back in the ring with me. He knows exactly what it feels like to go toe-to-toe with me. For the next seven weeks, he will have sleepless nights knowing what he has finally signed up to. His last couple of opponents didn’t come for battle, they didn’t even put heat on Dillian and on December 22 I’m coming to burn him up!"

Further details regarding the supporting cast of the showdown, which is being billed 'The Brawl To Settle It All', will be revealed in due course.

I got Whyte winning this, but the intrigue with Chisora comes from this strange new partnership with Haye. How does it affect this fight is also a sub plot.

remember when Eddie Hearn told Dillian he was fighting Ortiz next? :D [IMG][/IMG]

We can only hope... Yes please beat Whyte, so we can all have a good laugh if AJ decides to fight Chisora in April.

My favorite hw match up. If Chisora comes in a beast mode like he was in takam fight, he can win.

[QUOTE=JWHardin;19241985]Battle of the gatekeepers. I wonder why Hearn isn't pressuring Whyte to sign the contract now instead of waiting for the result between him and Chisora? It seems to be Eddie "British Bob" Hearn's new thing.[/QUOTE] Bacause 38 year old…
