“The rematch is going to happen,” Chisora told Sky Sports recently.
“The world is going to have to see the rematch. I’m going to destroy that guy.
“I’m going to batter him from corner to corner. I’m not even joking. I’m going to destroy him. I’m going to have to knock him out.
“I just want to fight. It will be a great fight. Dillian is going to come to fight. I’m going to come to fight.
“It’s going to be exciting. I would relish that fight. I would love that fight. I would take that fight at any time.”
According to Whyte, the 33-year-old Chisora’s unreasonable approach to negotiating is the reason their rematch hasn’t already taken place.
