WATCH: Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora pulled apart after glass is thrown in Sky Sports studio

Well this kicked right off.

The Gloves Are Off host Johnny Nelson has sat between plenty of rivals in his time but we reckon he's never seen anything quite like the altercation between heavyweight nemeses Dereck Chisora and Dillian Whyte that took place on Thursday.

Ahead of their December 10 clash, the pair were recording an in-studio piece for Sky Sports when tensions boiled over.

Harsh words were predictably exchanged before Chisora lost his cool and emptied the contents of his glass of water over Whyte's face.

Whyte then seemed to quickly snatch a glass of his own and hurl it in the direction of the former WBC heavyweight title challenger.

The table that was separating the two big men went tumbling and security was rushed in to put a timely stop to the ensuing brawl.

It's not the first time that Chisora and Whyte came close to throwing down as they were also separated from one another earlier this year when they crossed one another's path at a hotel.

Luckily, they won't have to wait too much longer before getting their hands on each other as they are slated to go head-to-head under sanctioned circumstances on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's world title defence against Eric Molina next month.

But as for the weigh-ins, we hope they've got plenty of heavies in attendance to get between the two.
