Oleksandr Usyk and Derek Chisora engaged in an offbeat exchange about the animal kingdom as they prepared for their heavyweight showdown. The unbeaten Usyk, who later weighed in at 217lbs, sees himself as a lion while Chisora, who tipped the scales at 255lbs, was happy to be cast as an elephant.
Chisora also added some theatricality to the Halloween bout, arriving at the weigh-in covered in white paint the word 'WAR' across his chest.
"If the king of animals would be detected according to size then an elephant would be the king of the animals not the lion," Usyk said via his promoter and translator Alexander Krassyuk.
Chisora responded: "An elephant is the king of the jungle for the simple reason a lion is only brave when there is loads of them.
"When an elephant is by himself, he can attack lions and get away with it."
