Derek Chisora plays music and refuses to speak before Eddie Hearn starts singing

Derek Chisora played music and refused to speak before Eddie Hearn broke out into song as the final press conference for his rematch with Joseph Parker descended into chaos.

Chisora has grown a reputation for his pre-fight antics in front of the media throughout his career and he was up to his old tricks once again.

The heavyweight is gearing up for his second fight with Parker, who beat him on a split decision earlier this year.

With revenge on his mind, he was in no mood to talk before fight night in Manchester on Saturday – unless Hearn paid him to do so.

During the conference the promoter said: "Del Boy, I kinda get the feeling you’re not a lover of these press conferences anymore."

He then leaned in to take note of the ‘Eddie pay me to talk’ sticker which Chisora had placed over his mouth.

"Oh no," Hearn responded as laughter ensued on stage.

"How much is that? Oh he can’t talk, that’s a shame," the Matchroom Sport founder joked.

He then continued: "Are you gonna put it in your phone? Are you not gonna talk?"

Chisora then brought out a speaker to play Queen hit Bohemian Rhapsody aloud.

Hearn made the most of the situation and began singing along before wrapping up the conference.

While Chisora sat in silence, Parker said: "The crowd made Derek feed off of them and having no crowd is pretty weird. I am looking to knock him out between round six and 10."

The New Zealander weathered a the storm in their behind-closed-doors first bout which included being knocked down after seven seconds.

Having got the decision, which Chisora strongly disagreed with, Parker then agreed to a rematch despite not being contractually obliged to do so.

Chisora, 37, could be in line for a potential final world-title shot should he manage to avenge his defeat.
