David Haye will smile about it today, but he has been on the wrong end of the sort of rage this week, that Derek Chisora exhibited. Now, he.
And that sums up the madcap world of the man called’Del Boy’, and who’d change him?
Chisora is a treasure of British boxing, and also he stays a must-watch inside the ring – and, since we saw this week, even out of it. Particularly if he’s not the major event.
“That is not likely to work for me personally. We will need to shift that,” he growled once advised that his struggle against Joseph Parker will come before Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis unite super-lightweight world names on October 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
“We Are No 1 No 2,” Prograis strike back.
“Do not get me started, bruv,” Chisora moaned. That was that. He left.
Haye, once Chisora’s sworn enemy and now his supervisor, responded:”To Derek, which was his very best behaviour. No tables have been thrown, nobody caught punched or slapped.”
It’s merely the most recent mood swing to the veteran of the game. Boxers would love to have conflicts amusing because Chisora’s press conferences.
And Haye knows first-hand when Chisora has woken up on the side of their bed how ugly an afternoon could catch. Their rivalry began seven years ago in Munich, at the summertime after Chisora had lost the world title challenge of his career. Haye had to mention and Chisora confronted him.
Fists flewblood . Chisora Don Charles suffered a broken jaw, Haye’s then-trainer Adam Booth has been cut.
Haye and chisora dropped their boxing licences over the melee, however the Luxembourg board agreed to sanction a fight at Upton Park, preluded with a media conference where they had been separated by a metal fence. Haye acquired by knockout.
When Chisora raised his voice this week and said”I’m likely to go ballistic”, the area full of tension and everybody hoped the heavyweight would not come their way.
“They call him’War’ Chisora for some motive,” Haye stated after calming his previous foe down.
“He’s attracted a number of the spite that he revealed in sparring to the press conference. I saw him thought and bubbling ‘I hope he stays where he’s sitting’.
“He’s ruffled feathers but that is Chisora. He speaks in the heart.
“Not ideal but Derek is Derek.”
Without being hauled into the ire of Chisora prograis and Taylor were not happy, and so.
“It had been disrespectful,” Taylor explained.
Prograis went further:”I believed that I may have to fight ”
Dillian Whyte believed the same 3 years back when Chisora hoisted into the air the press conference and pitched his way.
“This is how it is, man,” Chisora stated back then. “I do what I need, when I need.”
According to Haye, we’re seeing a Chisora today.
“He realises that time is slowly sinking,” Haye said. “He’s 35, not 28 anymore, which is an age at which you may have a loss and it does not really matter. He’s had lots of chances but he is huge.
“Last chance saloon is an old clich?? but that really is it.”
If that’s the case, preparations are not going. Dave Coldwell, the coach who led Chisora to his last few fights, is no more working together with him and has been substituted.
The promoter of both Chisora’s opponent Parker, David Higgins, said:”it is a indication of problems in the camp along with close to the fight. To shed his trainer out this far, and a coach that seemed to be a good team, you’ve got to ask why?”
Nothing has ever been easy or calm in the livelihood of Derek Chisora – and that we would not have it another way.
