Haye and Chisora square up for another war of words


David Haye and Dereck Chisora came head to head once again at their second press conference promoting their July 14th bout taking place at Upton Park.

David Haye: “In the ring I have never really done too much to break the law. Even outside of it. Whereas I’ve seen him bite people, so I don’t think people should put the spotlight on me because I’m a consummate professional inside and outside of the ring. This guy has a history of being the polar opposite of that. Outside the ring you have seen what happened, he has had a whole load of madness going on but inside the ring we have rules and they have to be abided by and I’m not training to break any rules. I’m looking forward to going out there and doing a job.

I’m always in good shape and I know I’ve got to do a job and do it clean and clinically and I’m training as such. I’m going to go out there and make a statement and so far training has gone nice and smooth. I’m enjoying training and been happy in my training. Sometimes I grimace through sessions but I’m happy with where I’m at.”

Dereck Chisora: “Right now I’m behaving myself. After the fight I will try to behave myself but in the ring I’m not going to behave myself because it is two animals in a cage and we are going to rock it out. There are going to be fireworks. Everyone wants to watch this fight. It has to happen because David keeps talking. All I say is it is going to be a great fight and I would love my opponent to come out of the ring healthy and in the same way and same for me. I just hope he is coming to fight because I’m looking for this sucker.”

Frank Warren: “This is a good fight, a quality fight. What happened in the past happened, it was months ago. The guys are not banned from boxing. The fight will take place. Whatever these guys have got against each other, they can sort it out and settle it in the ring and that is what is going to happen on the 14th July.”

The fight will be linked with the Nordoff Robbins charity, organised to help children and adults alike with various disabilities including dementia, brain damage and depression. Celebrities such as David Bowie, George Michael and even the Queen have supported the Nordoff Robbins charity which will be taking donations on the night of the fight.

Frankie Gavin, Matthew Hall and Liam Walsh are all scheduled to appear on the bill, which will also be showcasing Alexander Povetkin’s WBA heavyweight title defence against Hasim Rahman.
