Dereck Chisora says he will "bring war" to Agit Kabayel in their European heavyweight title fight and has warned the champion that he is "going on the floor".
'Del Boy' faces Kabayel this Saturday night in Monaco, live on Sky Sports, as he attempts to propel himself back into big-name fights by claiming the European belt.
His German opponent holds an unbeaten 16-fight record, with 12 knockouts, but Chisora believes he will be the last man standing in a brutal battle.

Boxing for me is out of the picture, I'm just going to come to war. He's going on the floor man, he's going on the floor.
"Trust me, everybody likes to come forward with me, but they all just tire out," Chisora told Sky Sports. "I don't tire out, I'm just going to be on it. I don't box, I bring war. I like war.
"Boxing for me is out of the picture, I'm just going to come to war. He's going on the floor man, he's going on the floor."
Chisora gave a critical assessment of Dillian Whyte's points win over Robert Helenius at the weekend and intends to outdo his British rival with a more explosive performance.
"It's not going to be an easy fight, it's going to be a hard fight, but I'm looking forward to it," said Chisora. "It will be better than Dillian and Robert Helenius, put it that way.
"I owe myself a performance, a big one. I don't think he's boxed anybody in my calibre. What happens in Germany, they give them these easy guys to box and then they think they're better fighters. We'll see when he arrives."
Trainer Don Charles has witnessed much of Chisora's eventful career and expects the 33-year-old to deliver a vintage performance.
"He's up for it," said Charles. "I have seen that all through the preparation for this fight and the way he's been performing in sparring. I think we're in for another Dereck Chisora classic.
"Styles makes fights. The guy he's fighting is a come-forward fighter, Dereck is a come-forward fighter, so you're going to have a head-on collision.
"We're in for a treat. I know when Dereck is going to give me a good performance. He wants to shine in Monaco."
