DEREK CHISORA went eye to eye with Kubrat Pulev in a Boris Johnson mask and amazingly wasn’t booed off the stage.
The 38-year-old Zimbabwe-born Brexiteer and pal of Nigel Farage donned the blonde disguise in support of BoJo.
And compared to the 41-year-old Bulgarian, nicknamed Cobra, it might have seemed to some Labor voters or ex-MPs that there were two snakes on the weighing platform.
But Del Boy was just trying to send a message of support to the heavyweight PM, who just lost a 12-round paste from his own corner.
“I haven’t met Boris,” he told SunSport with one eye on the TV as news of his breakdown broke. “But I like Boris.
“I think the country should be run by people who don’t care. It’s easier that way.
“And then you have people who work for you, who care.
“The biggest and most difficult decisions have been made by people who don’t care emotionally.
“If you don’t care, you have great power, if it means too much to you, you have no power.
“If you’re a surgeon, you can’t take care of the person you’re operating on because if you put fear into it, you can’t do it.

“If you only do what you’re supposed to do, people will survive.”
Unlike his Underfire sidekick, Chisora remains hugely popular in the elections, even after three straight losses.
And whoever tries to persuade him to retire will be voted out of his party.
“Everyone has an opinion,” he said of those of us concerned about the punishment he’s endured in 44 pro fights.
“But everyone wants to talk about the same thing – retirement.
“But I don’t listen to people, that’s one thing I learned in this game – you don’t listen to anyone, you do what makes you happy.
“Listening to people, walking around and saying people told me to do this or that, forget that.”
The fearless villain-turned-hero refutes any claim to hang up his gloves and points to other comeback kings and their popularity for much more than their boxing records.
“If you really want to know how good you are at this fighting game, you have to lose and come back,” he said
“Muhammad Ali lost five fights and kept coming back.
“In England we had someone like Amir Khan who lost a lot of fights and always bounced back.
“You can lose a fight as long as you don’t lose the motivation to get up, go back to the gym, work hard, make a paste and make a comeback.
“If you lose that, you’re f*****”.
