February 27 – The image of boxing took a huge punch on the nose when Dereck Chisora, fresh from a points defeat to world champion Vitali Klitschko, confronted former world champion David Haye in front of a packed press conference room in Munich on February 18th.
In this video David Haye puts his side of the story across to viewers of ‘That Sunday Night Show’. He explains that he thinks Chisora should check into an anger management clinic and that if he could rewind time he wouldn’t have attended the press conference.
When questioned over the possibility the 2 heavyweights could meet in the ring, Haye stated that he has “no desire to fight Dereck Chisora inside the ring or outside the ring. I’d only fight Vitali Klitschko. If that doesn’t happen then I’m happy [staying retired].”
It was also suggested that Haye could have restrained himself. “He comes over to me, I feel his knuckles in my face, what am I supposed to do? I’ve got to close the show,” said Haye in his defence.
The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) have set a date of March 14th for a hearing to allow Chisora to put his side of the story across. The WBC have also stated that they will hold their own investigation so this issue will continue to be debated for weeks to come.
