Dillian Whyte, Dereck Chisora keep it professional at pre-fight news conference

Dillian Whyte, Dereck Chisora keep it professional at pre-fight news conference

The fight will air on Showtime in the United States and on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, with a broadcast time of 5:30pm EST on Showtime.

Chisora, the 34-year-old former world-title challenger now managed by David Haye, used a mouthpiece inscribed with the word "war" before outlining his approach to avenging his defeat in their first fight.

Anthony Joshua called Dillian Whyte an "idiot" but said he was open to facing his fellow Brit once more if Deontay Wilder was unwilling to fight him. "We have to knock him out, we are coming there with a knockout mentality", Chisora said. I don't really want to do that any more.

"I think the tables are screwed down so you won't have to worry about that", Chisora joked Thursday. But Sportsmail understands they received a message from the Whyte camp within an hour of his scheduled arrival to say he would not be attending as he needed a nap before going to the darts at Alexandra Palace.

Dereck Chisora's not-so-subtle jab was below the belt.

Whyte, the favorite, suffered his only loss by seventh-round stoppage to Joshua in 2015 in the fight before Joshua won a world title.

"I'm going to bring the same game I do for every fight and we're going to come to fight. I'm relaxed", Whyte said. Where Derek faded in the first fight, I believe he'll be able to maintain the insane pace that he set for himself. "We don't get chances very often to have undisputed champions, and that's what everyone wants".

"I like to have fights and the crowd in Monaco....you're sweating in there and you have people drinking their Margaritas, looking at you like it's the gladiators or the slave days fighting for the white man. I'm going to pound him". The last build-up made [promoter] Eddie Hearn loads of money so I'm not going to do that again.
