Dereck Chisora has revealed former foe Dillian Whyte texted him an invitation to fight on his undercard with Australian Lucas Browne, however, "Del Boy" says he will not offer a handshake to his British heavyweight rival.
Chisora explained that the exchange was initiated by the Brixton-born puncher, who battled to a split decision victory when the pair fought back in 2016.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the 34-year-old said:
"Me and Dillian, we normally take the p*ss out of each other."
"We just shout at each other on text message. He texted me one day, goes ‘Do you want to fight on my undercard?’ I was like ‘Yeah, why not.’ I sent him a sh*t emoji."
And Chisora may receive a hostile reception from ‘The Body Snatcher’ after sparring with Browne this week to help him prepare for a grudge fight.
But the former WBC heavyweight championship challenger insists he is not bothered about a potential confrontation with Whyte at next week’s press conference. Discussing Browne’s sparring sessions, Chisora added:
“I just told him, listen, stay sharp, and just focus. Box how you train. I gave advice. I told him: ‘Do what your coach tells you.’
“I don’t know if Mr Whyte is disappointed. Mr Whyte is Mr Whyte. I can’t really say much.
”The problem with Dillian, he likes to roll with this big entourage. I roll by myself. I don’t really care, to be honest with you.
”You can come and shake your Daddy. I don’t go to shake no man’s hand. He shakes me.”
