On the same night, Josh Warrington faces Carl Frampton at the Manchester Arena in Manchester.
Ahead of taking on Chisora for the second time, Whyte said: "This is going to be the donkey's final destination," via press release.
"This will be Chisora's last fight, the donkey's last ride. I think that he needs to really have a good think about taking this fight because he's going to be heading home after the fight looking like he's been run over by a truck. I believe that I'll knock him out in devastating fashion this time.
"Last time was my first 12 rounder and I was a little bit inexperienced but this time I'll know exactly what to do. He's at the end of the road.
"This is Heavyweight boxing and you never know what's around the corner, but I've done what I need to do to secure a shot at a World title.
"There's always something getting in the way, other fights being made or money and politics ruining things, but after I finish Chisora nobody can deny me my shot."
Chisora, meanwhile, is ready to reveal his new moniker: "On Saturday 22nd December, you will all witness exactly what 'WAR' Chisora is about.
"I'm not messing, I'm not playing at boxing. Dillian has spent the last two years avoiding getting back in the ring with me. He knows exactly what it feels like to go toe-to-toe with me.
"For the next 7 weeks he will have sleepless nights knowing what he has finally signed up to. His last couple of opponents didn't come for battle, they didn't even put heat on Dillian, on December 22nd I'm coming to burn him up!
"I was cheated in our first fight by the judges, everyone knows that I was the true victor. This time I have a score to settle, Dillian won't be hearing the final bell to be saved by the judges.
"I will be stepping in the ring a different fighter. I have everything to prove and it all to lose. 'Dell Boy' is no more, 'WAR' Chisora doesn't cut corners, he doesn't skip sessions, he doesn't look for the easy option.
"I'm in the gym every day pushing my body to its limit. I'm in complete control of my destiny, December 22nd will be WAR."
December 22nd - what a night for boxing fans.
