Dillian Whyte recorded the 22nd professional victory of his career last week when he outpointed ‘The Nordic Nightmare’ Robert Helenius to capture the WBC ‘Silver’ heavyweight title in a lacklustre bout. Many had expected following that bout, Dereck Chisora and Dillian Whyte would reinvigorate their ongoing rivalry and come to an agreement for a highly anticipated rematch. Those plans however suffered a setback after Chisora endured the 8th professional loss of his career to Agit Abayel this past weekend in Monte Carlo.
“He seemed unmotivated, he couldn’t be bothered,” Whyte told Sky Sports when evaluating Chisora’s display. “Dereck is a strange character, and that shows in his performances. Sometimes he shows up, and other times he doesn’t care.”
