David Haye, Derek Chisora engage in public brawl at Munich presser
Accusations flew around in the aftermath of an astonishing brawl between British fighter’s Dereck Chisora and David Haye at a German post-fight press conference when the two failed to control themselves in front of the world’s media.
Chisora, 28, had just gone twelve rounds with one of the best heavyweights of recent times in Vitali Klitschko, and obviously, the atmosphere pumped his adrenaline. The sight of Haye in the room sent the Finchley fighter over the edge, though, and police eventually questioned Chisora for threatening to shoot his compatriot.
‘Del Boy’ has been emphasizing his hatred for Haye for some time now, and whether it was a good idea to allow Haye into the post-fight press conference is a debate for another time as the damage is done.
Haye, a former WBA champion, had made his presence felt in an attempt to call out Vitali Klitschko for a June match-up.
In December, it had been discussed but this time angered a visibly irate Chisora, a man seeking another fight with one of the Ukrainian brothers.
Bernd Boente, Klitschko’s manager, was the first to berate Haye. This lead to Chisora following.
Ultimately, as an exchange of words ensued, Chisora then wanted Haye to come closer, so they could argue face-to-face.
In my opinion, there was only ever going to be one outcome from Chisora’s decision.
Still, it was the scale of violence that shocked the world of boxing as both used inanimate objects to cause bodily harm to Adam Booth.
The coach seemed to be hit with a tripod by his own fighter Haye.
Chisora also claimed that he was glassed by the ‘Hayemaker’ who seemed to have a bottle in his hand as he threw the first punch.
However, the former cruiserweight champion’s hand was closed when he reacted to Chisora’s aggressive taunts.
Both fighters are to blame for the ruckus, though, as the pair should have enough self-control to sort out their differences in the ring.
The raw feeling between the two had to come out sometime, and this, unfortunately, was it, and the world was watching.
Frank Warren said it right before the mass brawl was sparked by commenting that both fighters should meet each other. The winner then gaining another shot at the title.
Hopefully, the two Londoners will agree to a deal for the summer.
Interest in the heavyweight division has now been revived by this situation, like it or not, as even Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko both seemed intrigued as the two Briton’s butted heads like two bouncers at a nightclub door.
The aftermath is set to run for some time, though, as the implications or actions will certainly come back.
Still, when the dust settles, Adam Booth and Frank Warren have to sit down and thrash out a deal for what will be the most eagerly-anticipated British heavyweight fight since Bruno and Lewis, well, the rematch will be anyway.
