Former heavyweight world title challenger Dereck Chisora (29-9, 21 KOs) plans on continuing his boxing career despite losing a rematch to Dillian Whyte last month on December 22 at the O2 Arena in London, England. Not surprisingly, Chisora is still upset about his loss to Whyte, but he remains determined to continue fighting. His performance against Whyte was a good one for the most part, aside from the way he overreacted to the point deduction in the 11th. If Chisora had a chance to do it over, he would have stayed cool and composed after the second point deduction.

Dillian Whyte doesn’t rate unified cruiserweight champion Oleksander Usyk as a big enough name for him to be worthy of fighting, if he can’t get the match he wants against IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua on April 13 at Wembley Stadium in London, UK. As far as Whyte (25-1, 18 KOs) is concerned, there are only five fighters in the heavyweight division that are worth him fighting, and Usyk isn’t one of them due to him not being well known enough for him to fight him.
