Whyte vs Chisora 2 : weigh-in results and video: Whyte 248.8, Chisora 246.3,There are two big British pay-per-view boxing events to close out 2018 on Saturday. At The O2 Arena in London, heavyweight contenders Dillian Whyte (24-1, 17 KOs) and Dereck Chisora (29-8, 21 KOs) square off in a
rematch of a great slugfest from 2016, which Whyte won by split decision. This time around, the stakes are a tad higher, as the winner could be in line for a title shot against Anthony Joshua in 2019, or perhaps serve as the heavyweight debut opponent for undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.
As heated as this rivalry has been, these two kept their cool at the weigh-ins. Whyte weighed 248.8 lbs to Chisora’s 246.3 lbs, and they had their staredown.

British heavyweight bragging rights are on the line tonight (Saturday, December 22nd) from The O2 Arena in London, England, as Dillian Whyte (24-1, 17 KOs) takes on Dereck Chisora (29-8, 21 KOs) in a rematch of their 2016 thriller, which Whyte won by split decision.
These two have developed quite a heated rivalry beyond just fighting. They’ve exchanged a war of words, public confrontations, and uh… whatever the hell this is. Anyway, this is a more important bout than their first one, as the winner could be in line for a title shot against unified champion Anthony Joshua, or perhaps welcoming undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk to the heavyweight ranks. Expect another slugfest, as both men will look to make a major statement in hopes of landing a massive fight in 2019.
