Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora will resume their heavyweight British rivalry in a rematch on December 22nd held at London’s O2 Arena. The London-based duo will clash in the capital just over two years since their last bout. Whyte claimed victory against Chisora in a contender for ‘fight of the year’ in December 2016 via a hotly disputed split decision. "I believe that I'll knock him out in devastating fashion this time," said Dillian Whyte. "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." Derek Chisora also ensured his name remained in the heavyweight conversation with a stunning KO victory against the hard-headed Carlos Takam. https://twitter.com/MatchroomBoxing/status/1058070

Anthony Joshua extended his unbeaten run in the heavyweight division last night defeating Carlos Takam after a 10th round stoppage. Many were expecting the fight to end sooner as Takam had only 12 days notice. Yet he exceeded expectations taking the Brit all the way to the 10th round, despite sustaining an eye injury in round 4. Since the eye injury, the referee and doctors were making sure Takam was still fit to carry on but the experienced heavyweight’s injury only spurred him on. Could the fight have gone further? Many thought the fight was stopped too early. Considering the physical damage Takam sustained throughout the rounds the Cameroonian did not look fazed by Joshua’s punches in round 10, which begs the question: should the fight have gone on? https://twitter.com/Ch
