Froch: Chisora, Don't Know if He's Mentally Ill or Unstable

By Luke Furman

IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch believes the antics of British heavyweight Dereck Chisora are disgusting and a disgrace to the sport. This Saturday in West Ham, Chisora will challenge Froch's close friend, former WBA champion David Haye. Froch is shaking his head at Chisora's behavior during February's Vitali Klitschko fight week in Munich. Chisora slapped Vitali at the weight, spit water in the face of Wladimir Klitschko and then brawled with Haye at the post-fight press conference.

"I don't know whether Chisora is mentally ill or unstable," Froch to the Evening Standard. "But the way he was behaving in the build-up to the fight [with Vitali] was totally unreasonable. It was disgraceful. He slapped Klitschko at the weigh-in and then spat in Wladimir's face in the ring. That is no way to behave. As a professional you should be leading by example. David Haye gave Chisora a smack in the face at the press conference but I don't think he did it deliberately, it was instinct."

Chisora acts the way he does due to his upbringing and surroundings probably. He doesn't care what people think and does his thing. Quit attacking Chisora, he's fine.

He loses his temper easily, get's carried away and so on. Doesn't mean he's mentally ill. But probably a little nuts. During and after the Vitali fight, I think he didn't have the personal skills to deal with all the…
