Former British heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte sent Dereck Chisora messages on Instagram requesting for a street fight.

Whyte, who is now 30 years old, began his career as a professional kickboxer before turning to the gloves as he beat Anthony Joshua in his first amateur bout in 2009, aged just 20.

Following on from then, Whyte developed as a boxer, but in 2012 he was given a ban by the UK Anti-Doping organisation after having been tested and positive traces of the banned substance Methylhexaneamine being found.

Whyte returned to the ring two years later and beat Croatian boxer Ante Verunica with a TKO upon his return.

The experienced boxer agreed terms to fight London rival Chisora in 2016 following almost a year of firing harsh words at each other through social media.

But, in a pre-fight press conference, Chisora lost his temper and ended up throwing a table towards Whyte, narrowly missing the trainers and promoters who were also sat on the stage.

The sudden violent outburst led to the BBBofC withdrawing their sanction of the fight and thus the British title was no longer at stake. The WBC international belt remained on the line though and, following a controversial split decision, Whyte was awarded the victory.

Post-fight Whyte admitted that he would not consider giving Chisora a rematch, but the 30-year-old soon reversed his decision and admitted that he would be open to a potential second bout with his nemisis.

But, in the past few days, Whyte has been challenging Chisora to a bout through messages on Instagram.

In a screenshot posted by Chisora on Twitter, Whyte said: "You are a coward.

"But listen, forget all this, let's meet somewhere Derrick, you bring 2 guys, I bring two.

"And we bring 50k each, me and you fight."

Chisora responded to Whyte's proposed street fight by raising the stakes on offer.

"Thats a bit stupid of you are there I dont have any cheerleaders so I can't bring anyone.

"Fight me in the rain, the winner takes all. If you believe you beat me the first time, should be easy for you this time"

Whether the two will swap hits in the near-future in a street fight is yet to be known, but should the duo ever take to the ring again, it will almost certainly be an incredible bout between two arch rivals.
