Dereck Chisora vs Dillian Whyte 2 was formally made official this afternoon in a highly anticipated rematch in the heavyweight division.
Contender Dillian Whyte has been slowly but surely mounting a challenge for one of the world champions in recent years while Chisora has bounced back from looked like the end of his career at the top flight of the division.
The pair will box on December 22nd live at the O2 Arena in London.
The very same night Carl Frampton and Josh Warrington will box in Manchester.
Head to head on TV / online streaming services – both in the US and the UK.
Here’s some of the reaction to the news so far:

Absolute disgrace, you and kugan both said in January on IFL this wasn’t a PPV headliner, what is the criteria now seriously?

Chisora knocked out Takam and Whyte beat Parker on PPV. The event was hugely successful not surprised this is PPV at all…

And that PPV was one of the best value PPV’s I’ve ever bought. Not a single issue in buying this. None at all.
