British heavyweight Dereck Chisora has revealed he was blocked on social media by rival Dillian Whyte after the pair had a heated confrontation at Tony Bellew vs David Haye.
The two have enjoyed a fierce rivalry of recent years before the two finally met in December 2016 on the undercard of Anthony Joshua versus Eric Molina.
Whyte was the victor that night after a closely fought 12 rounds that saw the two produce a Fight of the Year contender which only added to the increasing conflict between the two heavyweights.
Since then, Chisora has fought three times, losing once to German Agit Kabayel for the European title, while beating Robert Filipovic and Zakaria Azzouzi, the latter taking place on the undercard of Whyte’s win over Lucas Browne.
Whyte has similarly fought three times since gaining the split decision win over Chisora, beating Malcolm Tann and Robert Helenius before his sixth round stoppage of Browne.
The two furthered their rivalry by clashing ringside on the night Tony Bellew defeated David Haye for the second time in May of this year, and this prompted Whyte to block Chisora on social media.
Asked about the possibility of a second fight, Chisora told Sky Sports. "I don't know yet, but you have to give me that fight, Dillian. We'll have to see.
"He's blocked me on Instagram and everything. He blocked me on Twitter as well. He is upset."
The two will be reunited on July 28, as Whyte tops a Sky Sports Box Office bill taking on former WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker, while Chisora meets Carlos Takam.
Parker was the first man to take Joshua to points, but failed to retain his title as he was defeated in March, while Takam took ‘AJ’ 10 rounds.
Chisora, who holds a record of 28–8, recognises the challenge ahead of him on July 28, but insisted he is happy with the opponent.
He said: “I'm happy. Carlos Takam asked for the fight," he said.
"We know he's going to be on the back foot, try and box, we know that. We know exactly what he's going to do, box on the back foot.
"We're going to give the fans a great fight."
