Speaking to Sky Sports, Chisora said: “I’m down for the fight. I’m ready to talk to Eddie Hearn if he wants to.
“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 is no two ways about it, I’m going to destroy him.”
Chisora added: “This fight with Robert Helenius got cancelled but it don’t matter, we move on
Although Whyte had to pull out from his scrap against Wach with a foot injury, Chisora thinks the two heavyweights could still get it on for part II in July.
He said: “This fight (vs Helenius) isn’t happening, so how about we just do this.
“I’m in shape, he’s in shape, we need to do it. I can fight in July.”
