Dillian Whyte believes the new relationship between ‘mad man’ Dereck Chisora and ‘egotistical maniac’ David Haye is already doomed to fail.
Whyte takes on Chisora on December 22 at the O2 Arena in a rematch of their 2016 classic, which the Brixton man edged via a split decision after 12 rounds in Manchester.
The pair agreed terms on their long-awaited return just days after Chisora announced a shock new management deal with Haye, who he infamously brawled with at a 2012 press conference in Germany.
Dillian Whyte believes the new relationship between Dereck Chisora and David Haye will fail
Chisora and Haye settled their differences five months later with the Hayemaker stopping his opponent in the fifth round at Upton Park.
And now the 38-year-old has joined forces with Chisora and vowed to get him into the shape of his life with a strict routine at his south London gym.
But, with seven weeks to go until fight night, Whyte believes the pair will fall out before they even make it to the O2 Arena.
He said: ‘I think the wheels will definitely fall off because Dereck is a mad man. You have to know how to deal with Dereck and David is a narcissist and an egotistical maniac and it’s hard to work with someone like that.
‘Dereck is very proud and stubborn and forceful but they’re similar in many ways and David is probably going to think ‘I don’t need this, I got you the fight and I got my 25 per cent.
‘If David sticks it out then its a real achievement; it’s more of an achievement for David than for Dereck. Dereck is saying he’s doing this and doing that, that he’s sleeping now, its nonsense. You’re a grown man, David Haye says start sleeping and you start sleeping?
‘Because David Haye glassed him at that brawl, and broke [trainer] Don Charles’ jaw and bashed him up in the ring. Maybe he thinks “this guy bashed me up in and out of the ring and so he knows more than Don Charles”.
‘Maybe he doesn’t think Don Charles is capable enough to get him to this level and David’s beaten him.’

Chisora has been sober since New Year’s Eve, when he was ‘born again’ under Haye’s guidance
As part of his new deal with Haye, Chisora has ditched his old moniker ‘Dell Boy’ and rebranded himself ‘War Chisora’. He also says he has been sober since New Year’s Eve, when he was ‘born again’, which has made him a happier man in general.
But Whyte said: ‘There’s nothing new about him. Nothing has changed. He says he’s a born-again Christian – so why would he call himself War? It’s not very Christian.
‘You’d change your name to Moses or something. Sometimes as a man you might feel the need to revamp yourself and take yourself away from certain things. He says he’s stopped drinking but I know someone who works at a club he goes to all the time and he saw him out a couple of weeks ago.’
But Chisora insists he is a changed man after turning his back on alcohol and linking up with Haye.
He said: ‘I have been born again and stopped drinking, it had to be done block-by-block. Working with David is another block. The infrastructure and the team is right. I stopped drinking alcohol on New Years Eve so I am almost a year sober.
‘I was very smart with my drinking. I was not an alcoholic, I just loved a drink. Seven bottles of red wine with my buddies isn’t an alcoholic is it, God made wine! I am more happy now and spend more time with my family.’
