Dillian Whyte promises to 'knock out' Chisora

END OF THE ROAD: Dillian Whyte, right, and trainer Mark Tibbs hope to defeat Dereck Chisora during a bout in December

DILLIAN WHYTE believes he will put an end to Dereck Chisora's career when the two go head-to-head for a second time on December 22.

Whyte, 30, won the first encounter between the two London boxers in 2016, albeit in a close fight.

A rematch has always been slated and many neutral observers feel the timing is right for both to put the long-held rivalry to bed once and for all.

Following the fight’s announcement, Whyte – who is trained by Mark Tibbs – said he was confident he will get the win again.

“This is going to be the donkey’s final destination,” said Whyte. “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 ght, because he’s going to be heading home after it looking like he’s been run over by a truck.

“I believe that I’ll knock him out in devastating fashion this time. Last time was my first 12-rounder and I was a little bit inexperienced, but this time I'll know exactly what to do. He's at the end of the road.

“This is heavyweight boxing and you never know what’s around the corner, but I’ve done what I need to do to secure a shot at a world title. There’s always something getting in the way, other fights being made or money and politics ruining things, but after I finish Chisora nobody can deny me my shot.”

Chisora, 34, had a great win over Carlos Takam at the O2 Arena in July and believes that Whyte offers the perfect opportunity for him to gatecrash the heavyweight division, having previously looked like being on his way out.

He said: “For the next seven weeks he will have sleepless nights knowing what he has finally signed up to. His last couple of opponents didn’t come for battle, they didn’t even put heat on Dillian. On December 22, I’m coming to burn him up!

“I was cheated in our first fight by the judges, everyone knows that I was the true victor. This time I have a score to settle, Dillian won’t be hearing the final bell to be saved by the judges.”
