Scott-Chisora fight week is upon us; Scott was a no-show at Monday presser

Update: Malik Scott was a no-show at Monday’s press conference. Dereck Chisora was on hand to talk to reporters, while trainer Jesse Reed represented Scott.

Philadelphia heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KOs) is in London for fight week activities in advance of Saturday’s showdown with boxing badboy Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KOs) at the famed Wembley Arena in London. Sportsbooks have listed the fight as “pick ’em” between the unbeaten Scott, who continues to step up the opposition after his highly controversial draw against Vyacheslav Glazkov in February, and Chisora, who has fought by far the tougher competition.

The two engaged in an epic, profanity-laced conference call in the lead up to the fight.

Scott labeled Chisora as a freak show. “You’re known for everything outside of the ring. You’re known for kissing men at weigh-ins. I’m known for my skills. July 20 in London is mine. I’m f****g you up on July 20…you’re not known for nothing good in the ring. You take good a**-whoopings for a living boy, you kiss men at weigh-ins boy. You’re a f****t where I come from.”

Chisora countered that Scott hasn’t fought anyone, not one good fighter. “I’m going to f**k you up when I see you. I’m going to f**k you up at the press conference…you’re a** is mine. I’ve told you, you’re going to come here as a slave. I’m gonna slave you…that’s what I’m doing right now. You’re gonna make me money on TV, make me a big payday. You just come and get your money.”

Expect the fireworks to continue this week as Scott and Chisora will meet today at a press conference, on Thursday at another press conference, and again for the weigh-in on Friday before their big collision on Saturday.
