Watch: Dereck Chisora goes off at weigh-in for Pulev fight

Dereck Chisora had another weigh-in incident today, though not quite as crazy as some of his previous stunts.

Heavyweight fighter Dereck Chisora has always been known for being a little bit volatile (to say the least). In the past, he's spit water in the face of Wladimir Klitschkoslapped Vitali Klitschko in the face at their weigh-in, and was allegedly "bottled" by David Haye during a press conference brawl.

What happened earlier today in Hamburg, Germany, wasn't quite so dramatic, but Chisora (25-5, 17 KO) lost his cool and went on a minor rampage at the weigh-in for tomorrow's fight with Kubrat Pulev, which will be shown in the U.S. on AWE TV, along with the Anthony Crolla-Ismael Barroso card from Manchester, England.

Chisora was apparently hit with a plastic bottle, and tried to go after the chucker of said plastic bottle. From what we can tell, he was held back, but there was a lot of shoving and Chisora trying to get around people to pursue his, um, "attacker."

Not that I mean to downplay it. People shouldn't be throwing things at fighters -- I mean, for one thing, it's pretty stupid. Who wants to anger Dereck Chisora?

Chisora weighed in at 241.8 pounds for his fight with Pulev (22-1, 12 KO), who came in at 249.1 pounds. The two will fight for the vacant European heavyweight title, as well as a shot at the IBF heavyweight title, currently held by Anthony Joshua.
