As a non-boxing fan, all an incident like this does is to make me think less of the sport, why would he do that? Klitschecko handled it well though (it would seem)

Its the only slap he's going to get at klitchko, saying he's not afraid then turns up at the weigh in with a bandana over his face. Then throws a slap, he is s**ting himself!

Total lack of class and respect shown by Chisora, hope Vitali batters the head of him tomorrow night now.

Would hate to completely turn you off the sport, but Chisora's slap pales in comparison to Riddick Bowe nailing Larry Donald.

Chisora is a scumbag, and I hope Vitali puts a beating on him.

My favourite is the Barrera-Morales press conference. The bitter rivalry and the epic trilogy they fought makes it more significant than any of those other stunts.

The little smile Vitali had at the end of that video clip says it all; Derek is in for a tough night.

I hope some sanctions are brought against Chisora for this. No way should he be allowed get away with it; apart from Vit beating the crap out of him tomorrow, the authorities should definitely act and sanction him in some way.

Let's hope Vitali will bring some entertainment to the ring after this.

Do you know what happened Bowe for what he did? Never knew about that, it was quite sickening watching it there!

I don't believe Bowe was sanctioned at all. Fight went the distance, with Bowe winning. Think Bowe flipped because Larry mocked him when he was speaking/stuttering; as one of the youtube comments alludes to.

I was surprised for a second to see this match isn't on Sky. Makes sense though, they'd get a lot of flak for showing a murder live on TV.
