Dereck Chisora Slaps Vitali Klitschko At Fight Weigh-In

This weekend may be light on the MMA but it is heavy on the boxing and we have a major heavyweight title on the line when Dereck Chisora challenges for Vitali Klitschko's WBC title. Chisora has been quick with some great quotes in the lead-up to the fight and has insisted that he is coming to battle, not roll over. He tried to make that point very clear at today's weigh-in when he slapped Vitali in the face during the staredown.

Here's video of the encounter:



Bad Left Hook's Coverage of Chisora vs. Klitschko


Klitschko's response (via ESPN):

"I am going to hit back on Saturday," the Ukrainian champion said. "He will get his beating."

...

"I'm really looking forward to teaching this young gentleman a lesson," he said. "He is from Great Britain, but he's lacking appropriate manners."

Since it's going to be a slow weekend and I want to watch grown men punch each other in the face, I'll have coverage of the fight live tomorrow when it goes down at roughly 4:30 p.m. ET.

Update: Chisora was fined $50,000 for the slap.
