Here's your picture of the day: A slap in the face for Vitali

Dereck Chisora squared up to the heavyweight champion and caught him in the kisser at the weight-in this afternoon.

WELL, HE PROMISED to beat up David Haye when he sees him, but Vitali Klitschko was on the receiving end of a right-hander from Dereck Chisora this afternoon.

The British boxer came face-to-face with his opponent, the reigning WBC Heavyweight champion, during the weigh-in in Munich and has stoked the flames ahead of tomorrow night’s fight by lashing out at the Ukrainian.

“I’m the underdog in this fight which is exactly how I like it because when I knock him out in the eighth round it will shock the world,” The Guardian report the 28-year-old Londoner as saying, before a scuffle broke out.

“I’m going to war with him. I’ll make sure that he won’t get to use his big height and reach advantage against me with the way I’m going to fight him and I’ve got the eighth round in my head that I’m going to stop him in.”
