With these two heavyweights' rematch just around the corner, tensions appear to be heating up as Dillian Whyte has made his latest jab outside of the boxing ring. 

Their previous fight was regarded as one of the fights of the year when they met back in December 2016 and, now, they're ready to do it all over again. 

This particular fight resulted in a narrow victory for Whyte as the bout was left to be decided by a split-decision.

However, Chisora recently recorded a stunning victory against Carlos Takam, leaving fight fans on the edge of their seat for this heavyweight blockbuster.  

Regarding the fight, Whyte has said: "This will be Chisora's last fight, the donkey's last ride.

"I think that he needs to really have a good think about taking this fight. I believe that I'll knock him out in devastating fashion this time."

And when he referred to Chisora as a 'donkey', he meant that literally - based upon his recent profile picture switch. 

Within this picture, Whyte appears to be gloating above both Chisora and his new manager David Haye, which certainly portrays his confidence ahead of his fight in December.

Chisora had this to say ahead of the fight: "I'm not messing, I'm not playing at boxing.

"Dillian has spent the last two years avoiding getting back in the ring with me.

"I will be stepping in the ring a different fighter. I have everything to prove and it all to lose."

In addition to this, Eddie Hearn, who is promoting the fight, believes that we have yet another 'fight of the year' contender on our hands. 

"The first fight was one of the best heavyweight fights we have ever seen and I believe the rematch can eclipse even that.

"Both fighters enter this fight in their best form ever with everything on the line. We are guaranteed an absolute war."

Chisora is yet to reply to Whyte's recent low-blow, but the pair will be hoping to settle their differences on December 22.
