Heavyweight Dillian Whyte has never shied away from speaking his mind and calling fighters out.

The Brixton heavyweight has endured a fierce rivalry with Dereck Chisora over the past few years, as the two competed in a modern day classic in December 2016, with Whyte claiming a tight split decision victory.

Well Whyte and Chisora will lock horns when they meet again on December 22, at the O2 Arena in London, with the fight being broadcasted live on Sky Sports PPV.

However, two years on and Chisora will enter the fight with a familiar heavyweight face in his team - as Del Boy’s former rival David Haye was announced as the 34-year-old’s manager. 

Like Whyte, Haye had a fierce rivalry with Chisora and the two even brawled in a post-fight press conference before the Hayemaker recorded a fifth round stoppage over Del Boy in July 2012.

Haye has since retired, recently losing twice to former WBC cruiserweight world champion Tony
Bellew - but that hasn’t stopped Whyte from taking aim at his opponent’s manager, as The Body
Snatcher told Sky Sports he would be open to a fight with the former two-weight world champion.

"The option is there, (to fight Haye) if he wants it, after I beat Chisora," Whyte said. 

"He can roll the dice one last time. I would smash David.

"I wanted the fight from years ago. He looks like he's a light-heavyweight now."

Dillian Whyte v Joseph Parker

Since Whyte and Chisora's first encounter the Body Snatcher 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 however, has suffered more inconsistent form, as ‘Del Boy’ has also fought four time since meeting Whyte, including a dismal points loss to Agit Kabayel for the WBU heavyweight title in Monte Carlo.

However, after recently knocking out Carlos Takam in July, Chisora has now gained momentum which subsequently set up the rematch with Whyte.
