Haye Hints at Going For a First Round KO of Chisora

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE has vowed to return to his brutal best and KO Dereck Chisora in spectacular fashion on Saturday.

The Hayemaker was slammed for his passive surrender of the WBA heavyweight title to Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko last summer – and then blaming a broken little toe.

But Haye, 31, insists he will be back on form for the grudge match against fellow British boxing outlaw Chisora, 28, in front of over 30,000 fans at Upton Park.

The British Boxing Board of Control have tried in vain to stop the Londoners facing each other in the ring after they brawled at a post-fight press conference in Munich in February.

The Luxembourg Boxing Federation have instead licensed Haye and Chisora to ensure fight fans see them scrap it out legitimately this time.

After all the hype and controversy around the controversial scrap dubbed ‘Licensed to Thrill’, Haye is promising to deliver a ferocious first round – and chin Chisora.

He said: “I think this fight will be one of my most entertaining. My recent fights haven’t been the most explosive for one reason or another but no doubt about it, this will not go the distance in a million years.

“I will win by a knockout definitely and I’m looking forward to entertaining people.

“Nine times out of ten my strategies work and I’ve got one for this.

“People are going to be quite surprised from the opening bell. They’re going to be pleasantly surprised. If he’s lucky enough to hear the bell for the end of the first round he will realize, ‘I’ve never been hit this hard before’.

“The same as when he got buzzed in the first round against Robert Helenius in December, he will get it 15 times against me.

“I will knock him out ­whatever round he wants. I will have to check the odds first.

“He’s different to anyone I’ve fought with his particular style because I’ve been fighting at world level and people with his style don’t usually get to that level. He’s a pressure fighter – like John Ruiz – and I put him on his ass in 25 seconds.”

Despite his confidence, Haye insists he is not overlooking Chisora who took WBC champion Vitali Klitschko the distance in February.

He said: “I didn’t become world and European champion by underestimating people.

“I learned the lesson that you can’t underestimate anyone a long time ago.

“When Dereck comes out and has the fight of his life, it won’t faze me because I’ve prepared for his very best.”

After slapping Vitali at the weigh-in and then spitting water into his brother Wladimir’s face, moments before the February fight, Chisora at least promises to be on his very best behaviour before meeting Haye in the ring.

He said: “People like freak shows. We’re selling a freak show and if people want to watch, they want to watch, we don’t care.

“The only recognition I need is from my parents.

I’m respected in my own community and that’s all I care about. Nobody else’s opinion matters.

“The moment the bell rings I’m going to be all over David Haye.

He knows there’s not going to be any games.”

I think Haye really needs to up his work rate in this fight or he risks being outworked.

[QUOTE=paulf;12315040]In all seriousness; if Haye was able to put granite-chinned Chisora away in one round, it would be a huge statement. I don't see it, but I didn't expect him to put Ruiz on his ass the way he did…
