British boxing heavyweight champion Dereck "Del Boy" Chisora has been left raging after German promoters banned his entrance music from being played at his upcoming title fight.

Chisora, who will be facing off against Vitali Klitschko for the world heavyweight title in Munich at the weekend, has been sounding off after promoters refused to allow him to use what has become his signature tune.

The German promoters denied his request, claiming that it was childish and silly and not worthy of such a high-profile fight.

An angry Chisora said: "No sense of humour, obviously. I could not believe the Klitschkos KO'd my music. I mean, next to the national anthem, it's the most recognisable theme tune in the world.

"They didn't know what it was at first but then listened to it and came back saying it was childish and silly - which is an insult to one of the best TV comedy shows of all time.

"They want me to come into the ring with some Euro-rock trash like Europe's The Final Countdown.

"But I can't come out to that - everyone knows me as Del Boy. I'm beginning to think they're just a load of plonkers, as Del would say."

Chisora has already complained about his hotel room in Munich after he was placed next to a noisy building site for his fight against the Russian title holder.

"More tricks? Who knows but I won't be hanging around any more waiting to put the lights out in my room," he said.

"Instead I'll be putting the lights out on Klitschko."
