Heavyweight contender Dereck Chisora has been arrested by German police officers after threatening to ‘shoot’ and ‘burn’ fellow British boxer David Haye at the post-fight press conferece for his defeat to Vitali Klitschko.
The 28 year-old confronted Haye as he gatecrashed his Munich wrap-up with journalists, with the resulting brawl turning nasty with bottles and a tripod being used by Haye as members of Chisora’s entourage walked him down.
Chisora then threatened to shoot the ‘Hayemaker’ after he left the press conference and argued to the former WBA heavyweight champion’s manager Adam Booth that the two should meet ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ of the ring or he will ‘find him and burn him.’
Munich police have now been brought in and detained Chisora at 10:30am German time for questioning about the incident, but are still unable to locate Haye after searching the hotel where he was staying and the airport.
Haye, 31, could conceivably face charges for his closed fist bottle punch and his use of the camera stand which gave trainer Adam Booth a nasty gash on the top of his head and more developments are expected in the coming hours.
