Heavyweight rivals Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury had to be forcibly pulled apart by security during their public head to head today at the Printworks in Manchester, ahead of their WBO World Heavyweight title Final Eliminator on Saturday 26th July at Manchester’s Phones 4 U Arena.
During the event Chisora was angered at Fury’s recent Twitter comments which accused the Finchley man of using anabolic steroids, which was followed by a heated face to face exchange where both men had to be separated.
The bad blood then spilled over into a separate spat between Chisora and a member of Fury’s family who was being vocal about his feelings whilst standing amongst the 600+ attending crowd.
The video of the face off, chaired by BoxNation pundit Steve Bunce, can be viewed here:
