Haye Vows To Knock Chisora Out, Vitali Tilt in September?

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE has vowed to give Dereck Chisora a slow, painful beating before moving on to a world title shot against Vitali Klitschko.

The Hayemaker faces Chisora in a controversial clash dubbed ‘Licensed to Thrill’ at Upton Park on July 14, despite calls for the London heavyweights to be banned for life after their February brawl.

The pair had a punch-up at a post-fight press conference following Chisora’s points loss to Vitali Klitschko in Munich, which German police are still investigating.

And despite neither holding a licence with the British Boxing Board of Control, the pair will now do it again – this time with gloves – in front over 30,000 fans at West Ham’s ground.

Chisora, 28, had his licence withdrawn by the Board in March. Haye, 31, has not applied for a licence since announcing his retirement in October after last summer’s points loss to Wladimir Klitschko.

But promoter Frank Warren has bypassed the Board and overcome the problem of neither having a licence by staging the showdown under the jurisdiction of the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.

And for Haye, fighting Chisora – again – is a stepping stone towards his ultimate goal of facing either Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko, the Ukrainian brothers who hold all the world titles.

Adam Booth, former WBA world heavyweight champion Haye’s trainer, has already started talks with the Klitschkos over facing Vitali, 40, for the WBC title.

He said: “I’ve had a contract for David to fight Vitali in September. I’ve had conversations about that fight and it’s real.

“They have even sent me a draft contract. But we are not taking that fight at the moment because we have got this. Could he fight him in September? It’s possible.”

After announcing his retirement in October, Haye again has the Klitschkos in his sights. He said: “I’ve already accepted the Vitali fight is not happening for a while. I need to knock out Chisora and see where the landscape lies.

“By the summer, I will have been out of the ring a year so it’s good to be fighting again. If I’m going to be fighting Vitali or Wladimir, going through the motions against Chisora would not be a bad thing.

“It’s about putting him on his back and having a nice after party. All I have to do is start training in June and have a six-week blitz.”

Neither Haye nor Chisora showed any remorse for their Munich brawl as they hurled more insults.

The Hayemaker said: “I need to focus on this idiot for now. I don’t know what’s wrong with him. He talks the most random things.

“Where would he be if it wasn’t for what happened? He’d be in McDoughnuts. He does nothing special, he’s my ideal opponent. It’s a no-brainer, so why wouldn’t I do it? People kept asking when I was going to fight him.

“I think the same of him as everyone else. The best thing that has come out of his mouth is my fist. It’s going to be an exhibition. He’s going to get a nice, slow, concussive beating. I will show how much of an idiot he is.”

After the press conference brawl and the bad blood between these 2, I'm quite looking forward to the fight. Chisora has a good chin and comes forward so things could get interesting. Fully expect Haye to win though, without to…

Truth is I would love for haye to beat everyone, only because he is fun. To listen to. I wish his skills matched his mouth because the division could use a breath of fresh air. Not hot air. What is…
