DEREK CHISORA has told heavyweight newbie Oleksandr Usyk to "stop juggling balls" as the British fan-favourite called out the Ukrainian maestro.
Ex-crusierweight ruler Usyk, 32, made a successful debut in his new division this month stopping Chazz Witherspoon in seven rounds.

The tricky southpaw could be an avoided man at heavyweight, due to his movement and speed.
But heavy hitter Chisora – who faces David Price on Saturday – scoffed at Usyk's unconventional training methods which include juggling balls and dancing.
He told Sky Sports: "He still needs to stop juggling balls, it's not a circus.
"He came and did what he needed to do, stop juggling balls and dancing – nobody wants to see a dancing show.
"This is not dancing with the stars, it's a boxing match and you know what? I wanna have that fight.
"I'll take it 100 per cent, no shadiness."
Chisora, 35, looked in line for a big heavyweight clash at the O2 Arena this weekend until rival Joseph Parker pulled out of their fight due to illness.
Veteran David Price has stepped in, and "Del Boy" is relishing the chance to make it a hat-trick of wins in 2019 after getting past Senad Gashi and Artur Szpilka this year.
