DAVID HAYE has boasted he broke the jaw of Dereck ‘Del Boy’ Chisora’s trainer during their brawl in Munich.
Chisora and Haye scrapped at a post-fight press conference in Germany three months ago and will now settle their differences in a controversial clash at West Ham United’s Upton Park ground on July 14.
The London heavyweights, who do not hold a boxing licence between them, are set to collide in a bout the British Boxing Board of Control vehemently opposes, due to their bare knuckle dust-up.
During the ugly scenes in Germany, Haye claims he broke the jaw of Chisora’s coach Don Charles as he heaped more scorn on his bitter rival.
He said: “Chisora has an idiotic coach who has also offered me out in a fight after I’ve already broken his jaw at the press conference.
“I’m not sure if anyone knows he had his jaw wired because it was broken. Idiot.
“Why is he, a 50-year-old man, trying to fight me when he has already seen me take out his young, 28-year-old, primed fighter with four blows? Then he wants to come and fight me. Now he has done a video on the internet saying, ‘I want to fight David. I know it won’t make any money but I’ll kick his a***’.
“This is the guy who is training him, so these two idiots together, two buffoons, can you imagine them in the gym?
“Two ego-maniacs, idiotic fools both of them – and you can expect plenty of the same on fight night, Chisora walking forward, hoping that he’s going to hit me with one big punch that he hasn’t really got.”
Boxing bad-boy Chisora has previously been banned for biting opponent Paul Butlin in 2009 and has kissed another opponent.
He slapped Vitali Klitschko at a pre-fight weigh-in and on the day of the same fight in February this year spat water into the face of Klitschko’s brother, Wladimir.
Chisora, 28, was convicted of assaulting a former girlfriend and given 150 hours’ community service in 2010 and Haye, 31, claims he will dedicate victory to women who have been beaten by men.
He added: “If there’s an opportunity for Dereck to get within arms’ reach of me he will do something at the weigh-in or press conference.
“I don’t know what logically goes on in his brain. He’s not a nice guy and this fight will be dedicated to all the women who have been beaten – and people who have been bullied – by men like Dereck Chisora. This one goes out to them.
“I’ve always had respect for opponents as human beings, even though I don’t let them know it.
“But there’s nothing to like about this guy. He has no social graces and for me to say that, someone who is supposed to be a real bad guy, apparently, shows how bad he is.”
