DILLIAN WHYTE (20-1, 15KOs) and Dereck Chisora (26-7, 18KOs) could be set for a rematch of their thrilling heavyweight war.
The feuding pair settled their differences in a classic British clash at Manchester Arena.
Whyte edged a twelve round split points decision over Chisora after both traded huge blows that had the 21,000 fans inside the venue on their feet for most of the brutal 12-round affair. The fight was sanctioned by the WBC as a title eliminator.
The fight had seen an ugly build-up as they scuffled at a recording of a preview show before Chisora chucked a table at his rival at the final press conference which almost caused the fight to be scrapped.
But Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn is ready to put on the rematch.
He said: “I’d love to do it. I thought it was one of the best heavyweight fights I’ve ever seen.
“Both of them a credit to the sport. After an ugly week, it was so nice to have a fight like that where they touched gloves and congratulated each other.”
