WATCH: Dillian Whyte KO’s Dereck Chisora In The 11th Round

Fans expected a barn burner in the rematch.

Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora met in a rematch at the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom.

Their first fight was a barn burner as they went toe-to-toe for twelve rounds. Whyte won their first meeting by split decision, but it was so action packed it left fans wanting more. Fast forward to 2018 a few days before Christmas and the two were ready to dance once again. The fight picked up right where the last one had left off.

Both Whyte and Chisora delivered big shots and were putting on another exciting fight. It was a close fight and the heavyweights were making sure fans were getting their money’s worth. Chisora was deducted two points in the latter part of the fight. Once in the eight round for a low blow and then again in the eleventh round for using his elbow. Having lost two points in such a close fight had many wondering how it would affect the judge’s scorecards, but Whyte made sure that would not be an issue.

Not long after Chisora had the point taken away in the eleventh round, Whyte delivered a short left hook that ended the fight. It was fast and furious and Chisora hit the ground like a sack of potatoes. He was out cold, and the doctors rushed in to check on him. Eventually being able to walk away under his own power.

Now that’s power

It seemed this one would be going to the judges, but when you are dealing with heavyweights any blow can be fight ending. Much like their first fight, this one was entertaining from start to finish.

Whyte erased any doubt of his split decision win in his first fight with Chisora after the KO win in the rematch. This now has everyone talking about another rematch for Whyte. Whyte has one career loss and that is to none other than Anthony Joshua. Whyte lost by KO to him back in 2015.

With Joshua’s potential matchup with Deontay Wilder seemingly an eternal hold, Whyte seems like another option for the champ. After a decisive win like this one, it makes his case stronger to get another crack and Joshua. The Wembley Arena is already booked for Joshua in April of 2019, although his opponent is yet to be named. After this performance, there is a good chance it could be Whyte.

Can Whyte avenge the loss?

If Whyte does earn the rematch against Joshua he will have the chance to upset the balance of the heavyweight division. Currently, the top three are Joshua, Wilder, and Tyson Fury but getting Joshua in the ring with Fury or Wilder has proven difficult. The terms by both parties are the sticking point, but if Whyte can pull off the upest it will open up the top of the division.

Do you think Whyte should get the next crack at Anthony Joshua or would you rather wait and see if a fight with Wilder can come to fruition?
