Just three weeks remain until Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora meet for their rematch at the O2 Arena on the 22nd December. In their first bout, back in December 2016, Whyte managed to win a split decision, to the dissatisfaction of many fans. The public was polarized on the rightful winner so a rematch was only a matter of time. Attempts were made to stage the rematch in 2017, yet Chisora chose to fight Agit Kabayel instead. In the meantime, Whyte embarked on a strong winning-streak by beating Robert Helenius, Lucas Browne and securing a pay-per-view debut victory against Joseph Parker. Fans are expecting even higher stakes than the first bout since the winner of the rematch is projected to be in contention for Anthony Joshua’s belt. https://twitter.com/newman0204/status/10683

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
