Dereck Chisora has no doubt that his old rival Dillian Whyte will be back and in a big way soon.
The two London heavyweights produced two thrilling battles in 2016 and 2018 with Whyte winning both by split decision and 11th round knockout.
The 35-year-old got his first world title opportunity in April against Tyson Fury at Wembley Stadium with the WBC champion knocking his challenger out in the sixth round.
Whyte now has three losses on his record, but Chisora has proved time and time again that defeats are just another number on your résumé with a dozen of his own in the L column.
In an interview with DAZN Chisora said:
“I don’t understand why people make it the end of your career when you lose a fight.”
“He’ll come back; he’ll fight on a big show to warm up.”
“Boxing is a game of comeback kings; it doesn’t matter what you do.”
Regardless of whether Whyte had won or lost against Fury he said the plan was to always have a few more big fights then retire.
“I still want to do the same thing. Nothing has changed. Opportunities are still there. I’m still one of the best fighters around.”
Chisora is back in another big fight tomorrow night at the O2 Arena, London live on DAZN. The 38-year-old rematches Kubrat Pulev six years on from their first fight in Germany which Pulev won by split decision to win the European Heavyweight title.
