Dereck Chisora launched a table at Dillian Whyte in a typically wild pre-fight press conference ahead of their bout on Saturday (10 December).

After exchanging barbs, Chisora picked up the table he was sat in front of and threw it over Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn, sat in between the two and their teams, and towards Whyte and his trainer Mark Tibbs.

Chisora was hauled away by security and had to be physically restrained as he attempted to fight his way back on stage.

Before launching the furniture, 'Del Boy' barked: ""Look into my eyes, if you think I'm a pussy, I'm a punk you tell me right now. Because, listen, I am the baddest man you could ever f*cking meet."

The Londoners meet on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in their WBC title eliminator, with the British heavyweight title also on the line, on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs Eric Molina at the Manchester Arena.

Wednesday's fracas will have come as a surprise to absolutely no one. Chisora and Whyte had to be pulled apart by security when they met face-to-face during Sky Sports' The Gloves Are Off segment in November. With tensions boiling over, Chisora threw a glass of water in his opponent's face. As the two went for each other security guards flooded the studio to separate them.

Both fighters could now face action from the British Boxing Board of Control. Unsurprisingly, Chisora and Whyte will now weigh-in separately on Friday.
