Dereck Chisora makes possibly the weirdest threat in boxing history

Darragh Murphy

We’ve seen various types of threats from different heavyweights over the years

There’s been the eloquent poetry of Muhammad Ali, the menacing promises of Mike Tyson and the matter-of-fact predictions of Wladimir Klitschko.

Now there’s this gem from Dereck Chisora which will go down in boxing lore as one of the strangest things ever uttered in the build-up to a fight.

During a recent episode of the Gloves are Off, Chisora was asked how he expected his upcoming rematch with Dillian Whyte to play out.

Chisora’s response left both Whyte and host Johnny Nelson baffled.

“Have you ever taken those laxative pills? The ones that you take, you pop, and then you wait for 20 minutes and you go to the toilet? They go through you. I’m going to go through this man,” said Chisora.

Whyte appropriately responded: “That’s a bit of a weird analogy.”

The first meeting of the British rivals in 2016 saw Whyte claim a split decision over ‘Del Boy’ but Chisora has knocked out three of his four opponents since that bout.

Whyte, meanwhile, is looking to put himself in the position where he can avenge his one career defeat against Anthony Joshua and a dominant win over Chisora on December 22 could well set up a second meeting with ‘AJ’ next year.
