Haye, Chisora Promise Immediate Fireworks on July 14

British heavyweights David Haye and Dereck Chisora have vowed to curb their questionable behavior outside of the ring ahead of their controversial meeting at Upton Park on July 14.

The pair notoriously traded blows in Munich in February, when they clashed at a press conference which followed Chisora's loss to Vitali Klitschko.

The fall-out led to Chisora having his license revoked by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) while Haye, who at the time was technically retired, was largely unrepentant.

Now the two will meet in a little over a month and Haye has questioned the morals of his opponent and is also keen for a clean fight.

"In the ring I have never really done too much to break the law - even outside of it," he said.

"Whereas I've seen him bite people, so I don't think people should put the spotlight on me because I'm a consummate professional inside and outside of the ring, this guy has a history of being the polar opposite of that.

"Outside the ring you have seen what happened, he has had a whole load of madness going on but inside the ring we have rules and they have to be abided by and I'm not training to break any rules - I'm looking forward to going out there and doing a job."

Chisora claimed he is calm ahead of the bout but also claimed he will "not behave" in the ring as he looks to defy the odds and defeat the former WBA heavyweight champion.

"Right now I am behaving myself, after the fight I will try to behave myself but in the ring I'm not going to behave myself because it is two animals in a cage and we are going to rock it out," he said.

"There are going to be fireworks, everyone wants to watch this fight, it has to happen because David keeps talking.

"All I say is it is going to be a great fight and I would love my opponent to come out of the ring healthy and in the same way and same for me. I just hope he is coming to fight because I'm looking for this sucker."

Haye has been out of action since he announced his retirement following his defeat to Wladimir Klitschko almost a year ago and revealed he has stepped up his training regime as he aims to be back in the best shape possible for the fight against his London rival.

"I'm always in good shape and I know I've got to do a job and do it clean and clinically and I'm training as such," he said.

"I'm going to go out there and make a statement and so far training has gone nice and smooth. I'm enjoying training and been happy in my training - sometimes I grimace through sessions but I'm happy with where I'm at."

With neither Haye nor Chisora being licensed by the BBBofC the fight at the home of West Ham United has been sanctioned by the little-known Luxembourg Boxing Federation.

Haye is going to be backing up early on so hopefully Chisora sticks to the script and bombs forward. This fight is a poor mans version of Foreman-Frazier but at least it will be exciting for however long it lasts.…
