DERECK Chisora is planning to show that Vitali Klitschko’s bark is worse than his bite here on Saturday.
WBC world heavyweight champion Klitschko is convinced that he can retain his title against the underdog from London.
But Chisora, who walks a dog of a very different kind around the streets of Hampstead, begs to differ.
‘Del Boy’, who weighs in at more than 17st and is 6ft tall, has a pet chihuahua called Killer for company.
The pair are a regular item in the streets around his home and he said: “You should see that little f***** in the park man – he goes after rottweilers!
“Killer is my minder – he looks after me. They are good dogs to have in the house because they hear everything – I mean EVERYTHING.
“Do I need a chihuahua to mind me? Yeah, you have to have one. If you don’t have a chihuahua you are not a real man.
“He is my first dog. I am a dog lover but not a Klitschko lover. I’ll be sending my little chihuahua to bite him!”
Chisora, 28, enjoyed a walk without Killer in the streets of snowbound Munich as he looks to spring a major surprise on Saturday.
He said: “The plan is to come in around 17st 4lbs. I have realised I want to enjoy training for this fight. I don’t want to get stressed out by it.”
Before flying out here, he was jumping into freezing water back in Hampstead and said: “Every time I did it, it left my muscles in pain.
"It’s like a ritual but it is f****** cold in there man. But it hardens you up and now I just can’t wait for this fight.”
