Dereck Chisora Kicks Off Backstage Carnage Ahead Of Dillian Whyte Fight

Dereck Chisora kicked off scenes embarrassing to boxing following the weigh in for his fight on Saturday against Dillian Whyte. 'War' Chisora called out Whyte's brother amongst lots of pushing.

Just two years ago Dereck Chisora threw a table at Dillian Whyte. In the build up to the pairs first fight, at the pre fight press conference, Chisora banged his fists on the table in front of him before lifting it and throwing it in the direction of Whyte.

In a world where you can't ever work out just how real the rivalries, and emotions that go with them, are it was genuinely shocking to see.


The two British heavyweights were hardly expected to put on a great fight but it became a bit of a classic slug fest as the two men just traded shots with gay abandon.

Two years on and the pair will square off again on Saturday night, Whyte on the back of an impressive win against Joseph Parker and Chisora following an equally impressive win against Carlos Takam.

The build up for the rematch has been a calmer affair but on Friday afternoon things got spicy again with Chisora kicking off with Whyte's brother following the weigh in:

Chisora, who changed his nickname from 'Del Boy' to 'War' has now teamed up with David Haye as his promoter who previously had a rivalry with Chisora.

The pair famously had to be separated by fencing during the weigh in before their fight. Clearly nothing has changed for Chisora.

Both men weighed in at 17st 8lbs with Chisora, the older of the two, looking in extremely good shape.

There were words shared at the weight in and they had to be seperated but backstage afterwards was where it all kicked off, with Whyte removing himself quickly as the two entourages got between the two.

Saturday night will be extremely interesting.
