Whyte v Chisora II confirmed for Dec 22 on UK Pay-Per-View

World Boxing News 01/11/2018

Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora meet in one of the most highly-anticipated Heavyweight rematches in recent times at The O2 in London on December 22, live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and DAZN in the US.

The date will mark just over two years since their epic Fight of the Year contender at Manchester Arena. Previously, Whyte edged out Chisora via a controversial split decision after 12 relentless rounds of brutal action.

Since that night, Brixton’s Whyte has gone from strength to strength. He now finds himself on the cusp of World title action after big wins over Australia’s Lucas Browne and New Zealand’s Joseph Parker.

Whyte destroyed Lucas Browne with a devastating sixth round KO in March. He then dropped and outpointed former WBO Champion Parker in a gruelling contest at The O2 in July to bolster his claim for a World title fight.

Finchley star Chisora has been gunning for a rematch with ‘The Bodysnatcher’ ever since their first memorable meeting. He finally gets the chance to avenge his loss against the WBC Silver Champion in an eagerly-anticipated Christmas cracker.

A rejuvenated Chisora is back on the World title hunt after sensationally stopping former World title challenger Carlos Takam in eight rounds on the undercard of Whyte’s clash with Parker at The O2 in July.

Chisora, now managed by old foe David Haye, has long maintained that he did enough to beat Whyte in their first meeting. He has promised to take it out of the judges’ hands by knocking out Whyte when they meet again in December.
