Chisora Slaps Klitschko At Weigh-Ins for Tomorrow Night’s WBC HW Title Bout [VIDEO]

(“Where I come from, this is what happens to you when you come in smelling like cabbage during a staredown.”)

Dereck Chisora must think he’s the Paul Daley of boxing. The brash Brit today slapped WBC heavyweight kingpin Vitali Klitschko across the face during the staredown at the weigh-ins for their championship bout tomorrow night in Munich. He may not get as good of a shot past the Ukranian can-crusher’s juggernaut’s guard tomorrow night.

The Zimbabwe-born England-raised fighter is just 1-2 in his last three fights. Not sure how rankings work, but in the UFC you might have been fired, not given a title shot after a slide like that.

Chisora indicated last month that he planned on kissing Vitali during the staredown, but opted instead to give him a French punch on the chin. Enjoy your five minutes, Dereck. Unless you prefer that your five minutes be when you were in the news after you beat up your girlfriend two years ago.

HT to CP reader “google” for the find.

If you post this. WHERE IS THE COVERAGE ABOUT THE POST FIGHT BRAWL? Chisora saying he'll shoot Hayes because he got a bottle on the head to some other bleeding dude and a smiling Klitschko on stage.

Staged, to the extent of "Hey, stupid, do something stupid that will get everyone talking about this worthless fight."

Chisora was so happy to be standing in front of greatness and didn't know how to break the ice for a conversation, he wanted for Klit to think he was cool so he looks like he started off with an offer to have Klit smell his fingers but Chisora go too excited and it turned into a slap.... Chisora has waking the giant.

At least they have a ranking system... just sayin.

what gives CAGEPOTATO the right to put Klitschko as can crusher and give him no respect? they are expert at what they do.
it feels like Rocky Balboa movie where the champ dixon or somtething like that had no respect because the opponents weren't good.
As long as they are winning and there are no GREAT challenges for them lets not give them crap. Tyson boxed against some tought people but no World champon either... thou tyson must be one of the most exiting boxers to ever live

I am all in that Vitali loses. I am tired of hearing about those fucking Russian (sic. Ukrainian) brothers, Natalia Egorova, and the bogus PhD in Sports Science.
El Guapo- February 17, 2012 at 1:19 pm
^Wlad fights like that, whereas Vitali is a more complete fighter. Wouldn't exactly call him dynamic or anything, but he is more well rounded than his younger bro. And although they're both pretty methodical, I can't knock 'em if they keep winning. Klitschko Bros = GSP

Gonna be another Klitchko jab fest -- all those brothers do is jab jab jab jab jab jab jab straight right jab jab jab jab jab jab jab straight right jab jab jab jab jab jab jab straight right jab jab jab jab jab jab jab straight right repeat.

Klitscho should've hit him in the Chisoras. Or licked it.
Viva Hate- February 17, 2012 at 12:04 pm
Can CP please confirm whether or not he was yelling “I fart in your general direction” during the slap?
El Guapo- February 17, 2012 at 11:57 am
Chisora's a beast, but methinks he just signed his death warrant. Not sure if he was in a pissy mood because of having to make weight or if he felt Vitali was dissing him or WHATEVER, but I agree with Birdman on this one; There's no need to pull shit like that, definitely a bitch move. His only saving grace is that Vitali's normally very calculated in the ring and maybe this will piss him off enough to make him fight differently, making him a tad vulnerable perhaps?

i thought you guys would enjoy that, but bootystar, the last guy who fought his brother tried the same shit, and now he's retired
Funny thing, they where both Brits.
That Guy- February 17, 2012 at 11:56 am
Actually, in the UFC you can get a title shot going 1-2 in your last 3. Just ask Machida

Didn't Super Nanny teach you bastards...
RSparrow- February 17, 2012 at 11:49 am
Another Brit pulls a bitch ass move. Spitting, slapping, or punching after the bell... I'm not being ignorant cause this shits been prevalent lately. My reaction would have been a right cross, some punk shit right there

Chisora got Cecil People'd baaaaadly his last fight! Actually, let me rephrase that, as that would be disrespectful to Cecil's blind ass(I don't think he fixes fights, I just think he's a shitty judge). Chisora fought Helenius, the undefeated heir apparent, in his own backyard(not literally)of Finland, in front of a uber-partisan Helenius crowd, and proceeded to beat him from post to post. I had it 10 rounds to 2, but the "judges" apparently turned in their scorecards before the fight even started and had it unanimously for hometown fighter.

That shot would have put Liddell on queer street for a month.
Walrus- February 17, 2012 at 11:25 am
Easy, bootystar, don't blow this out proportion.
Kid Clam Curtains- February 17, 2012 at 11:18 am
Already a star where?
KeithHackneyWindmillPalmStrike- February 17, 2012 at 11:17 am
Keep your pimp hand strong the way, you're a dead man
bootystar- February 17, 2012 at 11:11 am
win or lose, Chisora has secured his career with this, everyone is going to want to market this guy. If he didn't slap Vitali, after the fight no one would know his name, now everyone will want to promote him, he's already a star
Goat- February 17, 2012 at 11:10 am, anyone want to play Jenga?
