British heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora is more famous for his punching power than political knowledge, but that hasn’t stopped him from weighing into the Brexit debate on social media.
Chisora, who is gearing up for a heavyweight showdown with Dillian Whyte on 22 December, showed his support for Brexit in a clip posted on his Instagram story.
In the video, Chisora is filming from inside his car. Outside, a ‘Leave Means Leave’ protest is taking place.
The crowd of people can be seen displaying signs showing messages such as ‘leave means leave’, ‘believe in Britain’ and ‘no deal no problem’.

From inside a stationary vehicle, Chisora shouts "Brexit let’s leave", for which he gets a cheers from the standing crowd.
Members of the crowd give the boxer a thumbs up, before the car drives away and Chisora shouts "Brexit, Brexit, Brexit".
Chisora, 34, faces rival Whyte at London’s O2 Arena on December 22 in a rematch of their 2016 brawl at the Manchester Arena.

Last time out, Whyte was the winner via a split decision after the bout went all 12 rounds.
Chisora recently surprised many in boxing circles when he teamed up with David Haye as manager – a former bitter rival.
If Haye can help Chisora to get past Whyte at the second time of asking, he has his eye on a world title fight against the likes of Anthony Joshua.
