Dereck Chisora has stated that he is keen to start negotiating terms for a rematch with his bitter rival, Dillian Whyte.
Chisora was scheduled to square off against Finland’s Robert Helenius in a rematch on May 27th, and Whyte was set to fight Mariusz Wach on June 3rd.
However, both men had their upcoming bouts cancelled on the same day this week. Whyte withdrew from his contest with Wach after sustaining a foot injury, while the reasons behind the breakdown of Chisora vs. Helenius II remain unclear.
The first outing between Whyte and Chisora is seen as one of the best, most tightly contested, heavyweight bouts in recent years, but Chisora is certain the rematch will be a very one-sided affair.
“I’m down for the fight. I’m ready to talk to Eddie Hearn if he wants to,” said Chisora, speaking to Sky Sports. “I want to do the fight. It’s about Dillian Whyte if he wants to do the fight?
“Listen, it’s a simple fact, the last fight was great. My belief is he didn’t win it. He gets in the ring with me for this second fight; I’m going to destroy him. There are no two ways about it; I’m going to destroy him.”
“This fight with Robert Helenius got cancelled, but it doesn’t matter, we move on. This fight [with Helenius] isn’t happening, so how about we just do this [rematch with Whyte]. I’m in shape; he’s in shape, we need to do it. I can fight in July.”
