Derek Chisora vs Dillian Whyte? David Haye reveals possibility of trilogy bout

A possible trilogy could be on the cards with London foes Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora, who are both looking to return to winning ways after recent defeats.

Derek Chisora's manager David Haye has put the heavyweight forward as a prospective opponent for fellow Brit Dillian Whyte whose rematch with Alexander Povetkin is now off.

Chisora was unable to snap Ukrainian former cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk's unbeaten streak late last month, but Haye hopes to arrange a third fight between Whyte and the Zimbabwe-born bruiser in a hurry.

The fight would offer both men some form of redemption after disappointing losses in high-profile fights and give them the opportunity to prove they are heavyweight championship contenders.

Whyte vs Chisora III would be epic - Haye

Haye firmly believes in the box-office draw of the fight which would give Whyte the opportunity to claim a third victory over Chisora, having one the previous bouts in 2016 and 2018.

"The proposition of Whyte-Chisora III? Both fights were epic," Haye told Sky Sports News.

Whyte appears less keen to get back into the ring with Chisora, but Haye feels that he won't find a bigger name to face than his man.

Haye dismissed Whyte's chances of arranging a fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury.

Haye: Whyte, Chisora have unfinished business

"Eddie Hearn wants Whyte to jump in with Tyson Fury who still hasn't got an opponent [for 5 December], but I've heard Frank Warren say that categorically isn't going to happen.

"Why would the WBC champion fight someone who just got knocked spark out in his last fight? If he beat Povetkin, then for sure, he would be mandatory challenger. But after getting knocked out so spectacularly? That position evaporates.

"I can't see another fight that Whyte could have that is worthy with an opponent that is in shape.

"You could pick Andy Ruiz Jr or Luis Ortiz but how good would they be on two weeks' notice?

"Derek is in shape. They saw him at the weekend pushing in every moment of every round.

"I think it's a great fight. Dillian said he's the 'can man'.

"'Anyone who wants it can get it!'.

"We've heard him say he would fight anyone but everyone is running from him. Well, we've got someone here! What are you going to do?"

Whyte's alternative is to wait for his rematch against Povetkin to be rescheduled with 30 January reportedly targeted for the fight where the Russian will put his status as the WBC's mandatory challenger on the line.
