London, Feb 15 (ANI): Dereck Chisora has got a new pet - a Chihuahua he christened 'Killer'.
The Zimbabwean-born British boxer even said that he will be sending his little Chihuahua to bite Vitali Klitschko, who he is to face a bout soon.
Chisora, 28, goes training in his local park in North London with the tiny 'Killer' by his side.
"Killer is my minder, he looks after me," the Sun quoted him as saying.
"Do I need a Chihuahua to mind me? Yes, man, of course I do. You should see that little devil in action in the park. He goes after every big dog - Rottweiler, Alsatian, anything.
"And he's the best possible dog to have around the house. Killer hears absolutely everything. And when he hears something out of the ordinary, he's off... . . yap-yap, yap-yap-yap, yap.
"He sounds as if he is a 10st animal waiting behind closed doors. If you don't have a Chihuahua, you are not a real man in my book!" he said.
Watching him walk through the streets of Finchley, with his pet on the end of a fancy lead, heads turn.
"I can see the joke that the big heavyweight hope Dereck Chisora needs a Chihuahua to look after him. But you can't beat my Killer.
"Why does it have to be a big dog to be associated with a boxer? That's the problem with human beings. You do this job, so you should have this dog.
"I can see the jokey side of it. To be a model, do you have to have a Chihuahua? No. I like my Chihuahua. He is about two years of age but I don't make him go with me on my proper training runs. I don't want to be killing the Killer," he said.
Chisora has predicted he will take out the 40-year-old champion Klitschko in the eighth round of a showdown.
"I am a dog lover but not a Klitschko lover. I'll be sending my little Chihuahua to bite him!" he said. (ANI)
