We're Here At The Pre-Fight Press Conference, Annnd Here Comes The Table Toss!!!
I hate to say this, but interrupting himself mid-sentence and resorting to heaving cheap, mass produced sitting stations at the person he's debating automatically makes this dude the loser in the war of words. Fortunately, he did prove he has the ability to win something and that is any potential table tossing competition he enters to subsidize his boxing career. I know he didn't make direct contact with his target, but that distance and trajectory was the stuff that Gold Medalists are made of. Can only imagine his form would have been nothing short of flawless if he properly prepped for it instead of spontaneously doing it purely out of frustration when he couldn't think of anything clever to say. I'm usually not a big fan of pre-fight histrionics that always manage to seem more staged when they involve using easily transportable furniture as weapons, but it felt like the air that Dereck Chistora got on that throw was taken straight from my lungs. Considering the lack of discipline he exhibited here, that toss was more than likely the most amazing athletic feat he'll accomplish this week. Ideally he would have made his upcoming opponent look stupid with quick wit and saved the violence for the ring. However, if all else fails and you absolutely have to peg someone with something to get your point across then it might as well be something that the average person would struggle to fling across the room without injuring themselves or their ego.
