Povetkin vs Whyte were scheduled to collide this month, but their fight was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. There is a tentative date in July, which is likely not going to happen as planned.
The new date may come down in late July or early August.
Chisora has already spoken with Povetkin about flying over to Russia to help him prepare for Whyte.
“I’ve already said to Povetkin that, if he needs me, I’ll come and help him. I’ll fly to Russia,” Chisora told The Boxing Show on Sky Sports.
“He said that he’d get me a private jet to come. Povetkin is my boy. I don’t care [what Whyte has to say]. The Russian has already spoken to me and said: ‘When it’s time I’ll send a plane to pick you up and you can help me train’. I’m down for that.”
Chisora believes he was robbed of a win when he lost a twelve round split decision to Whyte in December 2016. In their 2018 rematch, Chisora was up on points when he was knocked out in the eleventh round.
He does expect a trilogy fight to happen at some point down the line.
“It is going to happen,” Chisora said. “The United Kingdom would want to watch that again.
“I’m open to any fight. As long as I can lace up the gloves I’m ready to rock ‘n’ roll anytime.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn is looking to stage Whyte-Povetkin in a closed doors setting in the UK – while Chisora might fight former unified cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk abroad.
“We have to come back with a bang. Whyte vs Povetkin, along with Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano, is a fight that I believe we will see at the end of July or early-August,” Hearn previously told The Boxing Show.
