Dillian Whyte has warned Dereck Chisora he will face a “different animal” on Saturday when they meet in a rematch two years on from a brutal encounter.
Whyte, 30, landed a narrow points win over his British rival in 2016 but says he has drastically improved since.
“I have been involved in battles,” said Whyte. “It’s a different man, my base is stronger, you will see.”
Chisora, 34, said the winner could face world champion Anthony Joshua next and claimed he would “pound” Whyte.
“Eddie Hearn is dangling a carrot in front of me and Dillian – that’s AJ,” added Chisora. “Whatever plan Dillian’s team have, ours is to bite the gum shield, seek and destroy.”
Whyte’s trainer Mark Tibbs responded: “We will meet him, greet him and beat him to the punch. This man is ready for all of them but we will not overlook Chisora.”
