There's evidently no love lost between Dereck Chisora and Dillian Whyte.

The pair come face-to-face this Saturday during Anthony Johsua's second IBF title defence, this time against American Eric Molina, and ahead of the fight they shared the stage for their pre-fight press conference.

The standard posturing and name-calling was present throughout the event but things got ugly when Chisora, the one-time WBC heavyweight title challenger in 2012, launched a table across the room at Whyte.

The build-up to this fight has had a nasty edge about it. The pair were involved in some pushing and shoving during Sky Sport's Gloves are Off programme and looks set to be one of the most anticipated fights on the card.

Also in action this Saturday, Katie Taylor will take part in just her second professional fight when she takes on Vivianne Obenauf. The Brazilian holds a record of 9-1 coming into the fight and Saturday will also see the return of Scott Quigg for the first time since his defeat to Carl Frampton in February.
