Whyte Chisora II in ‘massive danger’

British heavyweight boxer Dillian Whyte admits a December rematch with Derek Chisora has been thrown into ‘massive danger’, stating that negotiations need to come to a halt this week.

Whyte, 30, defeated Chisora the last time the two met back in December 2016 by split decision on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s title defence against Eric Molina at the Manchester Arena.

It was a slog of a fight which had fans on the edge of their seats throughout, with a rematch between the pair clamoured for ever since. However, Whyte admits the fight is in jeopardy, with time running out ahead of the booked date of December 22 at the O2 Arena.

“I think it needs to be done this week, if it’s going to be him [Chisora],” Whyte said in an interview with Sky Sports. “There’s other options on the table we are looking at. [Promoter] Eddie [Hearn] is speaking to a few people.

“Chisora is a fight the fans want to see, and it’s a fight I want to have, because I want to bash his head in, and just get the stoppage that I should have taken care of the first time around. Let’s see.

“There is a massive danger he will miss out on a career highest pay day. At the minute, as the deal stands, it’s getting worse.

“I’ve got options, he ain’t really got no options. The Anthony Joshua fight is there for me, there’s other fights that are there for me, and I’m just 30, so I’ve got so many options.”

Chisora recently confirmed that David Haye was his new manager, a decision which surprised many given the previous bad blood between the pair. Haye defeated Chisora inside five rounds back in July 2012 at Upton Park.

Whyte said he was happy that Haye was working with Chisora, but questioned his potential opponents decision to work with a former rival.”It’s good that those two are working together, but Dereck Chisora has got no morals and no class,” he added.

“This is the same man that humiliated him and beat him up. Chisora is a bit lost, so I think he needs David Haye for stability.

“I wasn’t surprised. Dereck is an idiot. He does weird stuff. A lot of what Dereck does, does not make logical sense, or financial sense.”
