It has finally been announced that Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora will get to re-run their December 2016 heavyweight classic.

Whyte and Chisora met met on the undercard of Anthony Joshua v Eric Molina at the MEN Arena, in Manchester, where Whyte won a close split decision victory.

Due to the close nature of the fight, and the intense rivalry the two domestic rivals have, Whyte and Chisora’s names have never been too far away from each other since that 2016 fight.

Since then however, Whyte has gone on to win four times with victories over Malcolm Tamm, Robert Helenius, Lucas Browne and more recently former WBO world champion Joseph Parker.

Chisora on the hand has suffered more inconsistent form, as ‘Del Boy’ has also fought four time since meeting Whyte, as he lost against Agit Kabayel in a dismal performance for the WBU heavyweight title in Monte Carlo.

However, after recently knocking out former AJ opponent Carlos Takam in July, Chisora has now got momentum behind him, which subsequently set up the rematch with Whyte.

The fight will be aired on Sky Sports PPV being promoted by Eddie Hearn; as Whyte headlines his third PPV card, having been in the main-event against Joshua and Parker prior.

However, the night will be shared with promoter Frank Warren’s BT Sport PPV show headlined by Josh Warrington’s IBF featherweight world title defence against Carl Frampton.

It’s not the first time Hearn and Warren have had shows air on the same night, and fans are once again not pleased with the clash.

What fight will you be watching on December 22, and do you believe Whyte v Chisora and Frampton v Warrington are PPV worthy?
