On Saturday 22nd December, Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora will clash at
London’s O2 Arena. After there fiercely contested clash in 2016, the two fighters meet again in the ring to end their long lasting feud.
Their last battle was a fierce scrap in which produced one of the best British heavyweight fights in history. The first fight between these fighters most certainly delivered, as the two competed in a real back and forth brawl.
Both fighters landed multiple blows, leaving Whyte and Chisora battered and bruised after the full twelve rounds were up.
Chisora came fast out of the blocks out being able to land his trademark hooks and overhand right before the frantic pace took its toll on the older fighter allowing Whyte to pile on the pressure with big shots of his own
He eventually became the much stronger fighter as the rounds went on. Whyte won a split decision with the smallest of margins.
Since their fight in 2016, Whyte has grown and developed into one of the top heavyweights in the division, holding a record of 24-1, with his most notable win against Joeseph Parker.
Whilst Chisora has had a recent resurgence in his career with an unbelievable stoppage of Carlos Takam. And with the recent appointment of David Haye, he will hope to reach the next level.
Although, Chisora has had mixed results in the last 24 months, he will be hoping this Saturday to continue his resurgence.
The fight has even bigger implications on the heavyweight division as the winner is likely to face Anthony Joshua, this gives added incentive for both fighters to win.
Whyte being the favourite going into this fight has everything to lose and knows that if he can use his superior boxing skills he can finish Chisora within the twelve rounds.
