Haye vs Chisora Rumored For a Summer Showdown

David Haye and Dereck Chisora are set to settle their differences in the ring, according to reports.

The British heavyweights notoriously traded blows in Munich in February, when they violently clashed at a press conference following Chisora's loss to Vitali Klitschko.

The fall-out was a messy one, with Chisora having his licence rescinded by the British Boxing Board of Control while Haye, who is technically retired, was largely unrepentant.

Their respective careers appeared to be over, especially with the Klitschko brothers seeming to have little interest in either of them and no licence to box with.

But quotes attributed to Chisora's promoter, Frank Warren, suggest that a summer meeting could be on the cards.

"It's a natural fight, it doesn't matter what anyone says," Warren was reported as saying.

"It's a bigger fight than either of them fighting Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko.

"There's a lot for them to fight about - in a proper environment.

"I do see the fight happening. It's the proper forum for them to settle their differences."

The prospect of a showdown has also gained momentum after Warren extended an invitation to the media to attend a press conference at West Ham's Upton Park ground next Tuesday.

It is thought he will confirm Kevin Mitchell and Ricky Burns as his next big promotion, although it now seems their could be another domestic bout to announce.

Chisora himself has revealed his desire to return to the ring, with his appeal against his suspension set to be heard on May 14.

And, in an interview with ITV London on Friday, the 28-year-old refused to rule out meeting former WBA champion Haye.

"I'm not banned - I'm not fit enough to hold a licence. Banned means you've been banned. But when you're not fit enough that means you're not fit," he said.

"I'm a boxer, I'm a fighter. I love fighting. Someone takes something you love, how are you gonna survive and progress in your life? I wanna fight again."

When asked if he wanted to fight Haye in particular, he said: "I want to fight everybody."

Although they had no obvious rivalry, relations between the pair turned sour when Haye walked into the post-fight press conference following Chisora's gallant points defeat to Vitali Klitschko.

Initially there to lure the Ukrainian into fighting him, Haye soon became embroiled in a heated argument with Chisora, with the Zimbabwe-born fighter taunting him about his defeat to Vitali's brother Wladimir last year.

Punches were then thrown and a tripod was wielded in scenes that shocked the boxing world.

Spokesmen for both fighters were unavailable for comment on Friday night.

This'd be Haye's most dangerous HW fight (in so much as getting repeatedly tagged). His chin isn't great, so i'd say Chisora by T/KO. Can't see it happening, mind.
