Dereck Chisora Slaps Vitali Klitschko in Face at Weigh-In for Title Bout, Champ Says Chisora Hit ‘Like a Woman’ (Video)

Dereck Chisora will have an opportunity to throw as many shots at Vitali Klitschko as he pleases on Saturday night. Apparently, that wasn't soon enough.

Chisora slapped Klitschko in the face on Friday during the weigh-in for their WBC title match. Klitschko didn't respond physically, but he did express his displeasure with the cheap shot after the incident.

"He hit me not like a boxer but like a woman, with an open hand," Klitschko said, according to the BBC. "If he wants to fight properly, he must do that with his fists. I'll be hitting him back [Saturday], in the ring."

Chisora enters the bout as the heavy underdog, and Klitschko feels that the 28-year-old is scared of stepping into the ring with him.

"He's not all there. Dereck is full of nervousness and I feel he is afraid, otherwise he would not have jumped back like he did," the champ said.

Even Chisora's trainer was upset with what happened on Friday, calling the boxer's actions "totally unacceptable."

Jose Sulaiman, president of the WBC, described the slap as "unacceptable" as well, and the WBC has since fined Chisora for his actions.
