Dillian Whyte has promised to retire rival Dereck Chisora when the pair face off for the second time in December, London News Online report.

Whyte defeated Chisora back in 2016 in a brutal heavyweight clash and after plenty of talks between Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn and Chisora’s manager David Haye, the Brit’s are set to renew their rivalry in London next month.

Whyte is thought to be on the shortlist to take on Anthony Joshua next April at Wembley Stadium, along with Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

However, talking ahead of his clash with Chisora, Whyte added fuel to the fire by calling Chisora a ‘donkey’, and promised to end his career at the O2 Arena next month.

This is going to be the donkey’s final destination. 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 then went onto add that he believes he has already done enough for a shot at a world title.

This is heavyweight boxing and you never know what’s around the corner, but I’ve done what I need to do to secure a shot at a world title.

With Whyte defeating Australia’s Lucas Browne and New Zealand’s Joseph Parker since his original victory over Chisora, a second win against his rival would increase speculation over a meeting with Joshua.
