Dillian Whyte has put a ‘voodoo curse’ on rival Dereck Chisora ahead of their highly anticipated rematch on December 22.
After two long years of waiting to scrap once again, the British heavyweights are set to slug it out once again at London’s 02 Arena.
After several physical altercations and cross words ahead of the first fight, the domestic rivals appear to have cooled the trash-talking somewhat.
Chisora’s hilarious anecdote about laxatives certainly tickled fans, but it appeared as though the verbal sparring may no have been as light-hearted as first believed.
During a deleted ‘The Gloves Are Off’ segment, it is understood Whyte muttered something under his breath which producers deemed too controversial to air on TV.
Although it is too difficult to decipher exactly what the ‘Bodsnatcher’ was saying, Johnny Nelson believes he put a ‘juju’ curse on his bitter rival.
The former world cruiserweight champion told iFL TV: “The producers and directors were not sure if it was profanity and what exactly he was saying.
“Because someone was going to understand what was said there.
“But translation – don’t ask me what he said.
“You can understand why though, because somebody will be out there and they’ll understand what was said and if the director and producer didn’t know what was said they could be saying anything.
“So they’ve got to be smart with it, they’ve got to be safe with it.
“My dad told me not to repeat it, it’s not good, it’s not coming out of my mouth, it’s a little bit saucy.”
Chisora will be hoping the appointment of former foe David Haye as his manager will counter-act any potential curses.
The former two-weight world champion is targeting world title fights for the 34-year-old brawler, knowing Anthony Joshua will be in the front row.
Although Whyte has been tipped to fight Joshua on April 13 at Wembley, Chisora will know he has a chance to throw a spanner in the works by claiming his revenge.
