Earlier in the week, boxer Dereck Chisora got into an incident with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko as he slapped him during weigh-ins before their scheduled title fight in Munich, Germany last night.

Before the fight even began, Chisora decided to make another enemy within the Klitschko clan as he got into incident with Vitali’s brother, Wladimir.

As Vitali’s record was being announced to the audience, Chisora decided to pull the old “spitting in your opponent’s brother face” routine:

In regards to the fight, Klitschko ended up winning by unanimous decision and was pleased with retaining his heavyweight title:

‘I am happy to defend my title. It was a good performance from Chisora. I don’t want to make excuses – it was not easy – but I saw every punch from Chisora. I am upset because I wanted to finish the fight before 12 rounds,’

After the bout, Chisora decided to get into another fight with British boxer David Haye after a post fight press conference. Dereck decided to mock Haye’s loss to Wladimir last year and as you can probably figure, Haye didn’t appreciate that talk.

The fight was so intense that police were brought in to separate the two fighters and considering that Chisora made out of the building alive is a little miracle all its own.

    hard to imagine why boxings popularity is basically dead in the US.

      Considering how popular shows like “Jersey Shore” & “Real Hosewives” are, this kind of stuff seems exactly what US audiences want.

        Have you seen the ratings on those shows? They are not good, maybe they are good for the MTV channel. But I am more surprised that show’s like American Idol and Survivor are still tops here.
