Dereck Chisora and David Haye go out of control in Munich, GermanyPosted on February 19, 2012, 06:56 AM by Anton Gurevich
Twenty-four hours after slapping Vitali Klitschko at the weigh-ins, the best from Dereck Chisora was yet to come in Munich, Germany.
Chisora left everything in the ring with Vitali Klitschko in an outstanding performance, only to lose via a Unanimous Decision to the crafty veteran in "Dr. Ironfist". Unfortunately for the Brit, his performance was marred by an ugly post-fight brawl with the former WBA Heavyweight champ David Haye.
The Telegraph's Gareth A. Davis describes the chain of events in Munich (make sure to read the full article):
"Chisora mocked the onlooking Haye for his poor performance against Klitschko's brother Wladimir last year and tried to goad his rival into a future bout. Chisora then confronted Haye during the press conference and the two men grappled around the room with onlookers and entourages getting involved.
At one stage Haye swung a camera tripod violently at Chisora's trainer Don Charles after trading blows with him, while Chisora brandished a glass bottle claiming he had been “glassed”. Booth suffered a gash on his forehead and claimed to have been 'glassed' himself. Police arrived as the incident calmed down and were on hand as Chisora eventually left the arena some time later. Detectives refused to confirm whether official action has been taken or whether an investigation is planned."
Chisora was already fined $50,000 for spitting in Wladimir Klitschko's face, just moments before squaring off with his brother, Vitali Klitschko, for 12 rounds of boxing. The post-fight mayhem with David Haye could well contribute to the "bad boy image" of Chisora, but I personally doubt that it will win him any fans.
It's not surprising that Chisora is now expected to meet David Haye for an opportunity to face Wladimir Klitschko. It's just that the promotion of this fight went a little bit over the top.
