Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora to be kept apart at weigh-in after table thrown at press conference

Video still taken from PA Video of Dereck Chisora throwing a desk as his pre-fight press conference with Dillian Whyte.

Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora will have separate weigh-ins on Friday ahead of Saturday’s heavyweight clash at the MEN Arena – after the challenger threw a table during today’s press conference.

The pair had traded insults as they geared up for their grudge fight.

The volatile Chisora, who has been fined and banned for various offences outside of the ring, picked up the table in front of him and flung it in Whyte’s direction. It did not hit the Brixton puncher, who is putting his British title on the line.

The bout – one of the main supports to Anthony Joshua’s IBF world heavyweight defence – also doubles as an eliminator for a shot at the WBC crown.

See Friday’s South London Press for a full interview with Whyte.
