Dereck Chisora’s boxing career has been littered with controversy.
While the Zimbabwe-born fighter has calmed down to a certain degree at the age of 36, there are still times when you think the crazy side of Chisora will resurface once again.
Thankfully, the prospect of any of his past misdemeanours appearing again are slim to none. Why? Because they were just absolutely bonkers.
A video has appeared detailing Chisora’s ‘controversial moments’ and it’s hard to believe that all the incidents came from just one man.
From emulating the legendary Mike Tyson by biting an opponent to spitting water in the face of Wladimir Klitschko, Chisora’s career has been synonymous with utter chaos.
Below, you will find a three-minute video of Chisora’s most controversial moments. Enjoy!
DERECK CHISORA’S CONTROVERSIAL MOMENTS
The video kicks off with Chisora’s face-off scrap with Anthony Joshua’s upcoming opponent, Kubrat Pulev.
We then move on to Del Boy’s clashes with the Klitschko brothers. The Englishman slapped Vitali in the face during their face-off, before spitting water at Wladimir in the ring.
Then there’s the infamous kiss he planted on Carl Baker during their stare down and his bite on Paul Butlin in 2009 – which saw him suspended for four months.
The Dillian Whyte saga comes up next, including their scuffle on Sky Sports’ Gloves Are Off and Chisora throwing a table at the Body Snatcher during their press conference.
Chisora was fined £25,000 for his actions in front of the media and Whyte’s British title was not put on the line during their first meeting.
Finally, the video ends with the David Haye incident. Watching it all back now, it’s amazing to think that the Hayemaker is now Chisora’s manager.
Thankfully, Del Boy is a far calmer entity and there is unlikely to be any controversial incidents in the build-up to Chisora vs Oleksandr Usyk on May 23.
One thing is for certain, though – it’s going to be one hell of a fight!
