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.
