Press conference descends into chaos as Dereck Chisora launches table at Dillian Whyte


Darragh Murphy

This may sound far-fetched but we reckon Dereck Chisora and Dillian Whyte won’t be squashing their beef even after their British heavyweight title fight this weekend.

There is no love lost between the pair, whose track record of sharing a room with one another isn’t great.

Last month, Chisora and Whyte had to be pulled apart during an appearance on The Gloves Are Off as Whyte hurled a glass at his rival.

Security was on high alert and they were kept as far apart as possible when they took to the stage on Wednesday to promote their December 10 clash, which will take place on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s IBF heavyweight title defence against Eric Molina in Manchester.

But nobody could have expected the sudden table-throw that came when Chisora lost his temper and decided to hurl the heaviest thing in arm’s reach at his foe sat eight feet away.

The 32-year-old sent the table in front of him flying and, in truth, snapped beyond control as security struggled to calm the situation.

At least we won’t have too long to wait until they get their hands on each other without the distractions of tables or glasses.

Just gloves… Hopefully.
