Heavyweight Boxer Derek Chisora has started his 60-hour community service order after threatening to kill two men.

Chisora was seen in the north London area clearing bin bags and shovelling dirt as he is punished for threatening two men for blocking his car.

A week after he was easily beaten in the rearranged fight with Tyson Fury in London’s Excel arena back in November, Chisora lost his temper after being late for an appointment.

In a visit to the post office his Mercedes was blocked in by Mansor Nikpor and Majid Rezaemi who left and note on their car which had a contact number to be contacted if they blocked anyone in.

The 31 year old boxer hurled abuse at the pair as they parked their car and as they returned back to the vehicle.

After threatening the hapless boxer with a call to the police Chisora replied by saying: ‘I’m late for my appointment. I’ll kill you.’

As the police arrived to the incident Chisora was seen poking one of the victims in the chest and claiming he would smash their faces.

The former Commonwealth Champion has had previous public order convictions against his name and a violence offence where he was given a suspended prison sentence in 2010.

Chisora was ordered to pay each victim £100 and was given 60 hours community service order after he pleaded guilty to threatening behavior with intent to cause fear or provoke unlawful violence.

His defence lawyer argued that the 31 year old’s lively hood would be affected and with an unconfirmed fight upcoming he should only do an hour or two a week so he can focus on his training.
