Top-rated heavyweight contenders Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora are closing in on their highly anticipated rematch Saturday, December 22 live on SHOWTIME at 5:00 p.m. ET/2:00 p.m. PT from The O2 in London.
Whyte (24-1, 17 KOs) and Chisora (29-8, 21 KOs) will go toe-to-toe once again in a rematch of one of 2016’s best fights on SHOWTIME BOXING INTERNATIONAL.
The all-British affair between the bitter rivals has been brewing since Whyte narrowly edged Chisora in a back-and-forth slugfest that necessitated a rematch.
Stakes are high as both fighters have been working toward world title opportunities. Possibly against IBF, WBA and WBO Champion Anthony Joshua and WBC Champion Deontay Wilder.
SHOWTIME BOXING INTERNATIONAL coverage will be provided by Sky Sports Box Office. With host Brian Custer and Hall of Fame analyst Steve Farhood.
As he prepares for a repeat performance, Whyte believes he’s sufficiently improved enough to get the job done.
“Everybody knows what I come with and what I bring into the ring. We worked on a few new things. We improved in every area,” said Whyte.
“There’s been a lot of talk from him about how he’s given his life to god and he’s got David [Haye] here and all that. We’ll see.
“I’ve changed a lot and improved over the last two years since the last fight. One thing I’ve improved is my consistency. That’s the main thing. I’ve been consistent.
“I’ve had hard fights, I’ve had boring fights, I’ve had exciting fights but I’ve been consistent.
“The first time I fought him it was only the second time I’ve ever been scheduled for 12 rounds and the time before that I got stopped.
“I remember the first time I went past five rounds it was like ‘oh crap, this is round six, round seven.’ But now I’ve been there and I’ve done it.
“I’m experienced and I show different things in different rounds. Even in my last fight, I got put down in the 12th round and got up and did what I had to do to win the fight,” he added.
