With the blockbuster all-British fight just around the corner, Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora will certainly be itching to touch gloves now.

As you are probably aware, the pair have already met before in what was described as the Fight of the Year, which resulted in a split decision in favour of Whyte. 

Therefore, this time Chisora will be looking to get his revenge and has brought in former heavyweight champion David Haye to help guide him through to victory. 

However, it's been rumoured by former boxer and 'Gloves Are Off' presenter Johnny Nelson that Dillian Whyte has put a curse on the gloves of Chisora. 

While speaking to iFL TV, the boxer responded in the most Dillian Whyte way possible.

"Johnny Nelson is talking s***," Whyte claimed

From here, it appears that the British boxer appears to clarify what actually happened during the taping, and claims he didn't put a curse on his opponent.

"Johnny doesn't know what he's talking about.

"I said hello to him Zimbabwean and Johnny doesn't even understand his own native tongue."

Dillian Whyte Press Conference

However, Whyte admits that he did make up what he said to Nelson and the former boxer was none the wiser.

"Yeah, that's it. I just made some nonsense up and just said it, I don't even know what it means."

He added: "Johhny Nelson is just trying to be the guy in the know."

When speaking to Sky Sports, it appears that Whyte will be heading into this fight a confident man, despite Chisora's recent comments ahead of the fight. 

(Watch from 2:50 in the below video to see Whyte talk about the supposed curse on Chisora)

"I think they have been working on a game-plan, and he's going to do something completely different.

"He says he's coming to war, but I know from experience when someone says that, they are going to come and do something else. Let's see."

The infamous Whyte vs Chisora 2 is set to take place this weekend at the O2 Arena and boxing fans from across the world will hope that Christmas can come early when it comes to this epic bout.
