David Haye predicts April 20 will be a night of ‘showreel knockout endings’

World champion turned promoter David Haye is looking forward to seeing Derek Chisora get back to winning ways later this month.

‘The Hayemaker’ is predicting an explosive evening as Chisora faces Senad Gashi at The O2 Arena in London’s Docklands.

Chisora shares top billing with Dave Allen’s battle with Lucas Browne and Haye believes it could be a ‘blink and you miss it’ event.

“On Saturday 20th April Hayemaker Promotions are excited to be back at The O2, the home of British Boxing,” said Haye.

“Once again working in partnership with Matchroom Boxing. We are looking forward to bringing fight fans an electric night of boxing with showreel knockout endings!

“Derek ‘WAR’ Chisora will be back. He’s on a mission to show the fans exactly what he has in his armoury under new Head Trainer Dave Coldwell.

“Former WBA World Champion Lucas Browne is set to go toe-to-toe with Dave ‘White Rhino’ Allen. Plus, future World Welterweight Champion Josh Kelly is also ready to set the ring alight.”

Haye stepped in to potentially halt Chisora from retirement thoughts. This came after ‘WAR’ suffered a ninth career loss in a rematch with Whyte.

The man formerly known as ‘Del Boy’ was floored badly by this UK rival. He was seriously contemplating hanging up the gloves.

Deciding against it, Chisora feels rejuvenated and aims to give a heavyweight title run one more chance.


Pointing to his knockout over Carlos Takam, Chisora has the power to trouble any heavyweight in the world. Firstly, he needs to begin by dismantling Gashi in fine style.

Further domestic bouts against the likes of Joe Joyce and Daniel Dubois could be on offer in 2019. Tests which Chisora will have to overcome to stand any chance whatsoever of gaining another world heavyweight title shot.

The last time Chisora competed for the crown, the all-conquering Vitali Klitschko won a unanimous decision.

A fateful night in Munich back in February 2012 ended with Chisora and Haye involved in an infamous public brawl at the post-fight press conference.

Haye would go on to knock Chisora out five months later at Upton Park before the pair eventually became friends later down the line.
