Whtye won last time after tables flew in the build-up and the two men produced one of Britain’s greatest-ever fights
DERECK CHISORA has hinted strongly about a rematch with ace British rival Dillian Whyte.
‘Del Boy’ suffered a points loss in an eye-catching heavyweight showdown last December.
And, if Chisora and Instagram are to be believed, the two fighters are going to square up again.
Maybe they could meet on IBF and WBA champion Anthony Joshua’s undercard when his next opponent is announced.
The post, featuring Chisora shaking hands with his promoter Eddie Hearn, read: ‘Deal agreed for Whyte rematch but shh don’t tell anyone till it’s announced next week.”
Their last showdown in Manchester was rate as one of the best heavyweight bouts ever.
Marred by flying press conference tables in build-up, the two warriors put on an amazing spectacle for 21,000 fans as both fighters showed terrific resilience to last all 12 rounds.
Chisora was decked in the final round but he got up to land his own telling blow on Whyte.

Whyte won the judges over by split decision with the final scores reading 115-114 (Chisora), 115-113 (Whyte) and 115-114 (Whyte).
Zimbabwe-born Chisora (26-7, 18 KOs) hasn’t fought since their entertaining slugfest.
Jamaican-born Whyte (20-1, 15 KOs) moved closer to a world title shot against Deontay Wilder after stopping Malcolm Tann in the third round on his American debut in Lincoln.
“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.
Whyte, says his promoter, Eddie Hearn, has tried to make their rematch twice thus far, but hasn’t been able to come to a financial agreement with Chisora.
“It can happen, but the problem is Dereck Chisora doesn’t know how to negotiate or do good business,” said Whyte.
“Yes, the fight can happen. All Eddie has to do is pay me and look after me the way I deserve to be treated.”
Whyte added: “I’ve beaten Chisora already. The only reason I would fight him again is if the money is right.
