Derek Chisora confirms he is in talks with Dillian Whyte over a trilogy bout

British heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora has confirmed he is in talks with Dillian Whyte about a possible trilogy bout.

The two fighters have already clashed twice, with Whyte emerging victorious in both bouts. The first was a close split decision win in December 2016, before Whyte successfully defended his WBC International heavyweight title with a knockout victory in their rematch in December 2018.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Chisora said that talks between the two camps have been ongoing, and that he is open to the idea of a third fight.

“Yeah, we've been talking. We've been talking and we're just trying to iron things out,” Chisora said.

The 35-year-old went on to stress that the fight must be an all-British affair, and that he is not interested in pursuing a fight against any other opponents.

“It's got to be an all-British fight. I'm not interested in fighting anybody else, I'm only interested in Dillian Whyte,” he said.

Chisora has been out of the ring since his loss to Whyte, his last fight being a split-decision victory over Senad Gashi in October 2018.

If the fight does happen, it could be a highly anticipated affair, with both fighters desperate to prove themselves as the better man. Chisora will be looking to avenge his previous defeats, while Whyte will be keen to prove that his victories were no fluke.

It remains to be seen whether the two parties can come to an agreement, but it is clear that Chisora is eager to step back into the ring.
