- Dillian Whyte will return to the boxing ring on October 30 against Otto Wallin
- Derek Chisora will face Joseph Parker in a heavyweight rematch in December
- Chisora lost to Parker in their previous bout in May via a split-decision
British heavyweight boxing will remain a vested interest on our screens beyond early October with news that both Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora will fight later this year.
Whyte, who has been waiting for a crack at WBC champion Tyson Fury for seemingly an eternity, will face Sweden’s Otto Wallin at the O2 Arena, London on October 30.
Chisora will then be in the ring seven weeks later when he takes on Joseph Parker at the AO Arena, Manchester – looking to avenge his split-decision defeat by the New Zealander in May.

‘The Body Snatcher’ Dillian Whyte returns home to The O2 on October 30 to put his Interim WBC Heavyweight World Title against Otto Wallin – the man that came so close to inflicting a loss on Tyson Fury,’ Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn announced on Thursday afternoon.
‘Then on December 18 Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora go to war again at Manchester Arena.’
Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) avenged his previous defeat with a statement fourth-round TKO against veteran Alexander Povetkin and reclaimed the WBC interim heavyweight title.
Wallin (21-1-0-1, 14 KOs) continues his good form coming into the fight, having beaten Dominic Breazeale and Travis Kauffman after a unanimous decision loss against two-time world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

Parker (29-2, 21 KOs) faces off against the mercurial Chisora (32-11, 23 KOs) in a rematch of their 12-round war in May.
Parker, the former WBO heavyweight champion, has tallied five straight wins since losing against Whyte for the WBO International heavyweight title.
‘War’ Chisora is looking to bounce back after losing by split decision against Parker and by unanimous decision against Oleksandr Usyk – who on September 25 faces WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion Anthony Joshua – last October.
