Whyte Gives Chisora A Week To Agree To Terms
Dillian Whyte has given Dereck Chisora and his new manager David Haye an ultimatum, agree to terms this week or miss out on a December showdown in London.
Whyte is looking for a rematch against Chisora on December 22nd at the O2 Arena in London but has been stuck in negotiations with Chisora and is tired of waiting in limbo.
“I think it needs to be done this week, if it’s going to be him [Chisora],” Whyte told Sky Sports. “There’s other options on the table we are looking at. [Promoter] Eddie [Hearn] is speaking to a few people.
“There is a massive danger he will miss out on a career highest pay day. At the minute, as the deal stands, it’s getting worse.
“I’ve got options, he ain’t really got no options. The Anthony Joshua fight is there for me, there’s other fights that are there for me, and I’m just 30, so I’ve got so many options.”
When asked about the new business relationship between Chisora and Haye, who had a bitter showdown in 2012, Whyte was hopeful Haye will drill some sense into his potential opponent.
“It’s good that those two are working together, but Dereck Chisora has got no morals and no class,” Whyte added.
“This is the same man that humiliated him and beat him up. Chisora is a bit lost, so I think he needs David Haye for stability.
“Haye is a bit more professional, and a bit more logical than Chisora is, but Haye is a massive ego-maniac, so you never know. He’s a lot more sensible than Dereck Chisora is, but this is David’s game we’re talking here, so I don’t know.”
With Whyte and promoter Eddie Hearn looking at other options, Luis Ortiz’ name popped up as he’s been calling for a fight with Whyte for several months.
“[Dominic] Breazeale, Luis Ortiz or Adam Kownacki, [Jarrell] Miller, all of those guys,” said Whyte. “Those are the kind of guys I would like to fight, so let’s see what happens.
“Eddie is actively in talks with some of them as well.
“Ortiz is silly. Ortiz is just a desperate old man. The grandad needs some pension money, that’s all.”
