British boxers Dillan Whyte and Dereck Chisora will rekindle their exciting rivalry this month when they tussle in a highly-anticipated heavyweight fight at The 02 Arena on December 22. Whyte had to go through 12 nail biting rounds to beat a tough Chisora in their first encounter two years ago but ‘Del Boy’ is confident that he will prevail on their rematch.
The pair appeared in the latest episode of ‘The Gloves Are Off,’ where Chisora promised to go through his rival like laxative pills, leaving Whyte in a state of shock. Ahead of their rematch, Chisora and Whyte went face-to-face at ‘The Gloves Are Off’ program.
In one of the interview’s shocking highlights, the 34-year old heavyweight came up with a weird analogy when asked how he will avenge his loss to the Portland, Jamaica native. Chisora told Sky Sports:
‘Have you ever taken those pills, the laxatives,’ he told Sky Sports during the shooting of the Gloves Are Off program. You know the ones you take, you pop and you wait for 20 minutes and then you go to the toilet and they go through you. I’m going to go through this man.’
That statement shocked Whyte and it took him a few seconds to digest Chisora’s statement before responding: “That’s a bit of a weird analogy isn’t it?” But Chisora insisted, ‘Everyone knew exactly what I was talking about, I’m going to go through this guy.’
Chisora currently holds a 29-8 professional boxing record and his rematch with Whyte will not just be about avenging his 2016 loss. The winner of the December 22-fight could earn a shot at squaring off with the current WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in a title fight on April 14 at Wembley.
Whyte, meanwhile, will defend his WBC Silver and WBO International heavyweight titles and is looking to extend his winning streak to eight fights. The former kickboxing champion has been undefeated in his last seven outings since losing to Joshua in 2015.
However, multiple reports claimed that boxing promoter Eddie Hearn is now on US soil to secure a blockbuster heavyweight showdown between Joshua and reigning WBC champion, Deontay Wilder, following his controversial split decision draw with Tyson Fury last Saturday in Los Angeles.
