Dereck Chisora fights Dillian Whyte for the British Heavyweight title on Saturday. Yesterday the boxers had a press conference that was going really well until Chisora picked up a table and threw it at Whyte. Count fellow heavyweight Anthony Joshua among those who think the table-throwing might have been staged. Via ESPN:
“People like entertainment and people like boxing so I think we’re covering the full package — both the WWE [World Wresting Entertainment] part and the old-school fighting part.”
In 2012, Chisora and David Haye weighed-in with a fence between them because of a previous press conference brawl. Earlier that year Chisora also slapped Vitali Klitschko at a press conference. These shenanigans must sell pay-per-views or something.
