Dereck Chisora versus Dillian Whyte could be the most explosive fight of the year.

As the two British heavyweights prepare to clash on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's world title showdown with Eric Molina in Manchester on Saturday night, the pre-fight press conference descended into chaos after Chisora hurled an entire table at Whyte and his team.

Chisora flew off the handle after his life was allegedly threatened by Dillian Whyte in their verbal back-and-forth. The duo have a history of bad behaviour, seen best in the recent The Gloves Are Off special on Sky Sports 1, which ended with Chisora throwing a glass of water at Whyte's face.

Whyte's only loss in the ring came to another domestic foe, Anthony Joshua last year. Chisora – now 32-years-old – has six losses, including a points defeat to Vitali Klitschko.

This is going to be war.
