Dillian Whyte congratulates Derek Chisora over his win against Kubrat Pulev. Chisora and Kubrat Pulev recently locked horns for the vacant WBA International heavyweight title. The fight was organised by Matchroom Boxing and was held at The O2 Arena, London, England on 9 July, 2022. Chisora came into the fight with the target to stop his three fight losing streak that started in 2020 against Oleksandr Usyk. Many thought this was going to be Chisora’s last fight before announcing the long coming retirement. On the other hand, Pulev looked confident after beating Jerry Forrest in his last bout. Before that the fighter lost to Anthony Joshua and failed to get his hands on the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO heavyweight titles.
