Charles expects Chisora to fight on
British heavyweight Dereck Chisora will not retire after his defeat to Dillian Whyte, trainer Don Charles has confirmed.
The Londoner claimed he got into the shape of his life before he battled Whyte at The 02 in December.
After controversially losing their 2016 fight on points, Chisora was again left disappointed as he went down in the 11th round via knockout on December 22.
Chisora was ahead on two of the judges' scorecards and Charles insists the 35-year-old will fight on due to the positives he has taken from that recent bout.
He told Sky Sports: "One thing that's been ascertained, is Derek Chisora is not retiring, he wants to fight on.
"He's a very proud man and obviously if he said he wasn't hurting, that would be a lie. I know my boy really well, it's hurting. He's putting a brave face on.
"The same way as a coach, I'm hurting, but I have to put a brave face on publicly. It hurts, but we've been here before.
"We will repair. He will repair and he'll be back, especially now with the inclusion of David Haye, the new regime, the discipline that David has brought into Chisora's life. If he can build on this, then I think Derek Chisora is a force to be reckoned with, within this current market."
