DERECK Chisora is firmly in Nigel Farage’s corner after publicly backing his new Brexit party.

The heavyweight boxer joined the former UKIP leader at a rally in Essex today.

Chisora has previously shown his support for Brexit by mocking protesters during a road trip through London in December.

And now he has taken it up a notch by taking to Instagram to upload a video of himself talking up Farage outside Sugar Hut bar and nightclub.

Chisora, born in Zimbabwe, said: “Here we are in Essex, with the big man himself kicking off his (Farage’s) Brexit campaign. Ready to rock n’ roll, ready to go to war.”

Unlike what happened to EDL founder Tommy Robinson, nobody is likely to throw a milkshake over Del Boy.

Farage has formed his new party ahead of the EU elections at the end of the month.

Addressing crowds he said: “What we need to do … is to begin a process whereby we break the existing two-party system. Parliament does not reflect the will of the people of this country.”

Meanwhile Chisora is plotting his next scrap following his victory over Senad Gashi last month. 

The former world title challenger has put himself in line for another big fight, with ex-WBO world champion Joseph Parker targeted.
