Whyte v Chisora Boxing Fight | Saturday 22nd December

Dillian Whyte vs Derek Chisora Boxing Fight

Joseph Holt is delighted to show the anticipated rematch boxing fight between Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora on Saturday 22nd December from 10pm.

The pair had their first grudge-match in December 2016 by a split decision with Whyte taking the victory. However, many protesting that Chisora should have been the rightful champion. Since then, Whyte has pushed himself into world title contention after beating Lucas Browne and Joseph Parker whilst Chisora had a knockout performance against Carlos Takam back in July. This now leads up to the upcoming bout on Saturday 22nd December which promises to be the perfect festive showdown as it's been 2 years since the pair last fought. 

Speaking ahead of the fight, Chisora said "I was cheated in our first fight by the judges, everyone knows that I was the true victor. This time, I have a score to settle, Dillian won’t be hearing the final bell to be saved by the judges. I will be stepping in the ring a different fighter. I have everything to prove and it all to lose.".

Meanwhile, Whyte added; "This is going to be the donkey’s final destination, this will be Chisora’s last fight, the donkey’s last ride. I think that he needs to really have a good think about taking this fight because he’s going to be heading home after the fight looking like he’s been run over by a truck. I believe that I’ll knock him out in devastating fashion this time. 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.".

Both fighters are keen to prove they are the rightful winner with pride and glory at stake as well the opportunity put themselves in pole position to face Anthony Joshua in April.
