DEREK CHISORA went nose-to-nose with Kubrat Pulev in a Boris Johnson mask and amazingly wasn't booed off stage.

The 38-year-old Zimbabwe born Brexiteer and pal of Nigel Farage donned the blonde disguise in support of BoJo.

And, up against the 41-year Bulgarian nicknamed the Cobra, it might have looked to some Labour voters or ex-MPs like there were two snakes on the weigh-in stage. 

But Del Boy was just trying to send a message of support to the heavyweight PM who has just lost a 12-round pasting from his own corner.

"I haven’t met Boris," he told SunSport with one eye on the TV as the news of his collapse emerged. "But I like Boris. 

"I think the country should be run by people who don’t really care. It is easier that way.

"If you just do what you are meant to do, people survive."

Unlike his underfire pal, Chisora remains fiercely popular at the polls, even after three defeats on the spin.

And anyone who tries to talk him into retirement will be voted out of his party.

"Everybody has got an opinion," he said about those of us who worry about the punishment he has taken in 44 pro fights.

"But everyone wants to talk about the same thing – retirement. 

"But I don’t listen to people, that is one thing I have learnt in this game – you listen to no one, you do what makes you happy.

"Listening to people, running around saying people have told me to do this or do that, forget that."

"If you want to really know how good you are in this fight game, you have to lose and come back," he said.

"Muhammad Ali lost five fights and kept coming back.
