David Haye will smile about it now, but he’s been on the wrong end of the kind of anger this week, that Derek Chisora displayed. Now, he is the one attempting to hold him .
And that sums up the madcap world of this man known as’Del Boy’, and who’d change him?
Chisora is a treasure of British boxing, and in the fall of his profession he stays a must-watch inside the ring and, as we saw this week, outside of it. Particularly if he is not the most important event.
“That is not likely to work for me. We need to change that,” he growled once told that his fight against Joseph Parker will come ahead Josh Taylor along with Regis Prograis unite super-lightweight world names on October 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
“We Are No 1 No 2,” Prograis struck back.
“Don’t get me started, bruv,” Chisora moaned. That was that. He abandoned.
Haye, after Chisora’s sworn enemy and now his supervisor, reacted:”For Derek, that was his very best behaviour. No tables were thrown, no one caught punched or slapped.”
It is merely the most recent mood swing to this game’s veteran. Many boxers would really like to have struggles as entertaining since the press conferences of Chisora.
And Haye knows firsthand when Chisora has awakened on the side of the bed, how ugly a day could get. Their competition began seven decades ago in Munich, in the summertime after Chisora had dropped the sole real world title challenge of his profession. Haye, chasing the Klitschko brothers, had to sayand Chisora confronted him.
Fists flewblood spilled. The then-trainer Don Charles of chisora suffered a broken jaw, the then-trainer Adam Booth of Haye had been cut.
Haye and chisora lost their boxing licences on the melee, however the Luxembourg board agreed to sanction a struggle at Upton Park where they had been split by a metal fence. Haye acquired by knockout.
When Chisora increased his voice that this week and stated”I’m going to go ballistic”, the room full of tension and everyone hoped the heavyweight wouldn’t come his way.
“They call him’War’ Chisora for a motive,” Haye stated after calming his previous foe down.
“He’s attracted a number of the spite he showed in sparring into the media conference. I saw him thought and bubbling :’I hope he just stays where he is sitting’.
“He has ruffled feathers but that’s Chisora. He speaks in the center.
“Not ideal but Derek is Derek.”
Without being dragged to the ire of Chisora, Taylor and prograis were not happy, and rightly so.
“It had been disrespectful,” Taylor said.
Prograis went farther:”I believed that I may have to fight ”
Dillian Whyte believed the same 3 years back when the press conference was hoisted into the atmosphere by Chisora and thrown his way.
“This is how it is, man,” Chisora said back then. “I do what I need, when I want.”
Remarkably, according to Haye, we are witnessing a Chisora now.
“He realises that time is sinking,” Haye said. “He’s 35, maybe not 28 anymore, that is an age where you may have a reduction and it does not really matter. He is currently on the cusp of something enormous although he’s had lots of chances.
“Last chance saloon is an old clich?? but this really is it”
Preparations are not going if that is the case. Dave Coldwell, the trainer who led Chisora to his last three fights, is working together with him and hasn’t yet been substituted.
The promoter of Chisora’s opponent Parker, David Higgins, said:”It’s a indication of problems in the camp along with near the fight. To shed his trainer out this far, and a trainer that appeared to be a fantastic team, you’ve got to ask why?”
Nothing has been calm or easy at Derek Chisora’s livelihood – plus that we wouldn’t have it another way.
