Dereck Chisora is not a fan of Dillian Whyte, as evidenced by Chisora throwing a table at him during a recent press conference.
The bad blood between the pair had been clear throughout the 20-minute media session at a Manchester hotel, as both fighters traded insults and swore repeatedly. Chisora eventually lost his temper and threw the table toward Whyte, sparking scuffles involving various people in attendance, including security staff. The table did not hit Whyte, and he was not hurt in the incident.
It was originally announced each fighter would have separate press conferences before ultimately deciding to just stick to one joint conference with each boxer being placed at the end of two different tables with additional security in hand. Obviously, it was not successful.
Whyte's trainer Mark Tibbs, who had also joined in the verbal sparring and used some crude language, threw a microphone back in Chisora's direction. This will not be the last time te two will meet before their fight as the weigh-ins on December 9 could create another situation similar to the one at the press conference.
Both Whyte and Chisora are former regional heavyweight champions. The two will fight for the British heavyweight title on the undercard of the Anthony Joshua and Eric Molina fight on December 10. That fight will be for Joshua's IBF world heavyweight title.
