DERECK CHISORA and Dillian Whyte failed to repeat the fireworks that marred the build-up to their first fight but still engaged in several hostile exchanges at Thursday’s head to head press conference.

The London rivals clash at the O2 in a repeat of their memorable showdown in Manchester two years ago when Whyte snatched a controversial split decision.

Chisora joked that the tables had been screwed down in reference to scenes in 2016 when he picked one up and hurled it at Whyte, earning a £25,000 fine and a suspended two-year sentence.
