David Haye and Dereck Chisora to fight it out in London
Date Posted: 28/06/12
Bitter boxing rivals David Haye and Dereck Chisora are to take their animosity for each other to the ring next month.
Followers of the on-going bickering between the two rebels of the sport should book London hotels near Upton Park for Saturday, 14th July to see the bout.
Plans for the fight began in February when the two brawled in Munich at a press event. The fight was organised to settle the score, and although the British Boxing Board of Control would not sanction the event, the Luxembourg Boxing Federation was willing.
In the punch-up Chisora accused Haye of hitting him with a glass bottle, later stating multiple times that he would shoot him in retaliation. Haye was also seen swinging a camera tripod.
Haye has admitted that the controversial fight may, in fact, be his last. He would only be willing to fight against either Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko, which between them have five variants of the heavyweight world title. But neither are particularly willing to fight the 31-year-old Brit.
