Dereck Chisora ‘Loses His Mind’ After Bottle Hits Him In Face At Weigh-In

By : Joseph Loftus |


In the mysterious world of heavyweight boxing, it would appear you can throw as many punches as you like at Dereck Chisora, just don’t throw a water bottle his way. 

And that’s exactly the life lesson one unlucky hooligan found out after reportedly launching a water bottle at the former European Heavyweight champ.

While posing for a face-off at the weigh-in for tonight’s bout against Kubrat Pulev, the Cockney fighter was apparently struck by a bottle, thought to have been thrown by a member of Pulev’s entourage.

Like a bull in a china shop, Chisora completely lost his mind and forced security guards aside before sprinting after the bottle thrower down a hotel corridor.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Chisora said:

That was it, I just lost my mind. I think any man, if they got hit in the face with a bottle, would lose their mind, and I just did that.

Was he trying to promote the fight? I don’t know. I was worried in case that was a glass bottle. You know that would have been my career over, everything would have been messed up.

I went mad, I’m not going to hold back, I went mad.

Unfortunately for the former heavyweight contender, it’s not the first time he’s been hit by a bottle – in fact, it’s not even the only time he’s been hit by a bottle in Germany.

Back in 2012, ‘Del-Boy’ was struck by a bottle in his infamous press conference brawl with David Haye as Chisora prepared for his fight against Vitali Klitschko.

Chisora will fight Bulgarian giant Kubrat Pulev in the European Heavyweight title fight tonight and, hopefully, he’s a bit more composed in the ring than he was here!
