Oner Blames Klitschko's Manager For Haye-Chisora Brawl
By Inna Lagun, allboxing.ru
Ahmet Oner, CEO of Arena Box Promotions, blames Bernd Boente, manager of heavyweight champions Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, for Saturday's vicious brawl between British boxers David Haye and Dereck Chisora in Munich, Germany.
After Vitali won a twelve round decision over Chisora, the tension exploded at the post-fight press conference - when Haye and Chisora exchanged harsh words and big punches. Their camps became involved in the violence and many called the incident "a disgrace to boxing."
"The blame for the escalation of this conflict, from my point of view, is Bernd Boente. Why was Haye invited [to the post-presser], when they knew that such a madman like Chisora would be there? And why were they allowed to provoke each other until the two of them began fighting?," Oner told Figo Sport.
"Boente has nothing to do in the boxing business, he does not understand the psyche of a boxer. This is very dangerous, and incidents like the one on Saturday hurt boxing and, of course, the image of Klitschko as the organizers."
He and Warren did stoke the flames between Chisora and Haye.Comment by sako5 on 02-20-2012
