Dillian Whyte: 'Warrior' ready for Dereck Chisora rematch

British heavyweight boxer Dillian Whyte will take on Dereck Chisora in a rematch in London on Saturday.

Radio 1 Newsbeat’s spent the last three months behind the scenes with the 30-year-old as he prepares for the fight.

Dillian used to train himself in south London and up until 2015 had never even seen a physio, but is now based at Loughborough University as he chases his dream of becoming heavyweight champion of the world.
