British Boxers In Embarrassing Brawl 

In the post fight conference after his loss to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, Dereck Chisora got into a wild and embarrassing brawl with compatriot David Hay. Klitschko’s manager Bernd Boente told Haye from the dias “You had an offer, you didn’t accept it, now you are out. You are out. You cannot talk yourself back into the fight, you have no belts.” Chisora then called out Haye, but Haye dismissed Chisora as “a loser.” Chisora challenged Haye to tell him that to his face and approached Haye sparking a melee.

After order was restored, a furious Chisora repeated several times that he would “shoot” David Haye and claimed Haye “glassed” him. Chisora suggested to Haye’s manager Adam Booth who was sporting a facial wound from the melee that Haye had hit him with a bottle by mistake. Meanwhile the Klitschko Team watched the whole scene unfold with bemused smiles on their faces. Boente stated, “With the bad experience we’ve had with British fighters we will now look for other countries.”
