With his New Zealander opponent not even at the event, Chisora went off at almost everybody else on the presser’s top table demanding his fight become main event instead.
He began: “Who’s the main event of this fight? That’s not gonna work for me. I’m not going to sell out O2 for them guys to be the main event.
“These guys wouldn’t sell box office by themselves, so f*** that. So either you give me main event or pull me out of the f***ing show…
“F***ing Muhammad Ali trophy? Nobody gives a f*** about it no more. No-one gives a f*** about little guys anymore. Boxing right now is thriving on the heavyweights.
“So for you to try and give me the chief support on my own bill, that’s b******s.”
Prograis then interrupted to make his case, but Chisora replied: “Nobody cares about you bro, let’s all be honest. Don’t get me started.
“I don’t give a s***. Am I taking the main stage yes or no? If I’m not, I want more money.”
In the end, the 35-year-old stormed out of the presser, leaving everybody else in shock.
