With the Dillian Whyte-Dereck Chisora heavyweight rematch official for Dec. 22, Whyte issued a stern warning to his rival about what to expect in the upcoming sequel — a lot of pain.

Via WBN:

“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. Because he’s going to be heading home after the fight 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.”

Whyte (24-1, 17 KOs) is believed to be on the cusp of landing another rematch, this one against unified titleholder Anthony Joshua on April 13th, should he successfully take care of business against Chisora. Whyte was stopped by Joshua back in 2015, in what was Whyte’s only professional loss and has since wanted to get some payback.

Meanwhile Chisora, (29-8, 21 KOs) is coming off a stoppage win over Carlos Takam in July. A win here for Chisora might finally land him a chance at winning a world title
