The particular British heavyweight rivals are getting yourself ready for career-changing fights as Chisora collides with Oleksandr Usyk on Oct 31, while Whyte battles Povetkin in a rematch on November twenty one, both live on Skies Sports Box Office .
Chisora has sparred along with Povetkin in the past and was not amazed that he delivered a fight-ending uppercut on Whyte, says manager Haye, who insists the Brixton guy did not just pay the price for any momentary lapse.
Asked about Povetkin-Whyte 2, Haye informed Sky Sports: “It’s a very dangerous combat and it’s a fight that I believe Dillian doesn’t want to accept it had been nothing other than a lucky impact.
“He thought, ‘I was winning the fight’, which usually he was, ‘I had your pet knocked down twice in the 4th round and I was winning the particular fifth round until I got strike by one shot and that has been it’. Anything can happen in boxing, it happens in the heavyweight department.
“I don’t think which is mindset you need. You can’t say, ‘You won because it was an anomaly’. That left uppercut that he put knocked out Carlos Takam, in an exceedingly even fight, in a very good toe-to-toe fight.
“It’s a shot that he tosses regularly. Derek was telling myself when he sparred with your pet, he was getting hit with this shot, so it’s one of his photos, and to get hit with somebody’s best shot isn’t very fortunate is it.
“The man has got a big shot. It’s such as getting caught with Dillian Whyte’s left hook. You know it’s presently there if you can practise to go under this, if you throw your right connect to the body or not, or you can fully stand up and get knocked out. ”

“I think he’ll earn the rematch. I think he’s as well fresh, ” said Haye.
“He needs to make sure the concern that he had in that Povetkin combat doesn’t happen again and he can be that, the same way that AJ did against Andy Ruiz Junior.
“You can find out. He didn’t have a deep prosperity of amateur pedigree. He originates from a kickboxing background, a few amateurish fights, and then he jumped directly into the pros and had to do it the hard method.
“He’s a seasoned man, but he doesn’t have the specialized pedigree that Anthony Joshua provides – an Olympic gold honor. Povetkin is another Olympic gold medallist, so he needs to use their attributes which is rough, tough, actual.
“He was looking to get too close and have a specialized back and forth and I’m like, ‘Why do you need to do that for? ‘ You could start to do what you do best and that’s strike people with jabs and throw large, massive left hooks that hit people out? ”
