Haye to Boente: “I knocked Chisora out”
By Sean McDaniel: In looking at new video of the brawl that took place on Saturday night after WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko defeated Dereck Chisora in Munich, Germany, David Haye was seen laughing with Klitschko manager Bernd Boente moments after Haye’s fistfight with Chisora had ended.
After Haye and Chisora were separated, Haye walked over to Boente and said “I knocked him [Chisora] out,” at which Boente was seen laughing.
In brawl, Chisora walked up on Haye to confront him and was immediately dropped with a right hand to the head. There may have been a bottle in Haye’s hand when he landed the punch. After Chisora got up, he kind of kept a respectful distance from Haye while Chisora’s trainer Don Charles attempted to mix it up and got tagged by a nice right hand from Haye.
After walking away from Boente, Haye said “Keep this guy [Chisora] away from me. I’m not going to lose by [boxing] license over you.”
It’s interesting that Haye and Boente were seemingly enjoying the brawl after it had ended because Chisora was irate at having gotten the worst of it. I don’t think he landed anything from what I could see, and it looked bad him on the ground.
It looked like Chisora was going to try and get a reaction of Haye when he walked up to him and question him about why he wouldn’t fight him. Haye was no doubt concerned about Chisora perhaps sucker slapping him the way he had done with Vitali a day earlier on Friday when Chisora slapped Vitali during the weigh-in without warning. Chisora said he was going to give Haye two slaps and Haye didn’t seem willing to wait to see what Chisora would do, as he landed a right hand almost the instant Chisora got to him. Strangely enough, Chisora was still trying to arrange a fight with Haye after the brawl by talking to Haye’s manager/trainer Adam Booth to see if he could make it possible. It looked bad.
