WATCH: Chisora pushes trainer through a wall in Whyte weigh-in rampage

Former world heavyweight title challenger Derek Chisora stepped on the scales in London on Friday to audible gasps from the crowd.

Chisora, who swapped his ‘Del Boy’ moniker for ‘WAR’ earlier this year, has obviously benefitted from linking up with David Haye.

His new manager, being a known fitness fanatic himself, Haye has whipped Chisora into the best shape of his career ahead of a rematch with Dillian Whyte.

Boasting ‘Dillian Suck My’ boxer shorts, Chisora had seemed in a good place.

The pair trade blows at The O2 on Saturday night, knowing a win for Whyte ends the feud for good.

Should Chisora pull off the victory following a close first encounter, a third fight is already being touted for the spring of 2019.

As the pair left the scales, an almighty kick-off took place.

According to Eddie Hearn, Chisora pushed his own trainer Don Charles through a makeshift wall as he attempted to get to Whyte.

Video from IFL TV shows the incident from afar. Although it can’t visibly be made out that Charles was the recipient of a push.

It’s not the first time Chisora has gone on such a rampage as similar happened before he fought Kubrat Pulev in 2016.

Chisora claimed he was hit by a bottle before chasing down anyone he could lay his hands on.

The Londoner eventually lost via split decision in Hamburg, Germany.

Fight week had been incident free following a table-throwing maneuver in the press conference for the first fight.

Fans on Twitter are now speculating more drama was needed in order for the show to compete with Josh Warrington v Carl Frampton.
