David Haye expects the rematch between Dereck Chisora and Dillian Whyte to be confirmed “early next week”.
‘Hayemaker’ became ‘Del Boy’s manager just over a week ago and went straight into negotiations with Eddie Hearn over the second clash between the London heavyweight rivals.

Hearn is currently out in New York for Daniel Jacob’s world middleweight title fight but Haye says the rematch is “90 per cent” done.
“That’s the fight we’re working on and we’re 90 per cent there,” Haye told Channel 5.
“All of the major stumbling blocks regarding negotiations have been passed and we are in a very good place.”
“Hopefully we are just dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s early next week and fingers crossed, we can get the fight that everyone wants to see.”
Whyte has already told Chisora “there is a massive danger he will miss out on a career highest pay day”, only to tell “the puppy not to worry”.
