David Haye can smile about it today, but he has been on the wrong end of rage’s sort that Derek Chisora exhibited this week. Now, he.
And that sums up the madcap world of this man called’Del Boy’, and who’d change him?
Chisora is a treasure of boxing, and also he remains a must-watch inside the ring and, since we saw this week, even out of it. Especially if he is not the most important event.
“That is not going to work for me personally. We need to change that,” he growled when informed that his struggle against Joseph Parker will come ahead Josh Taylor along with Regis Prograis unite super-lightweight world titles on October 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
“We’re No 1 No 2,” Prograis strike back.
“Don’t get me started, bruv,” Chisora moaned. And that was that. He left.
Haye, once Chisora’s sworn enemy and his manager, reacted:”To Derek, that was his very best behaviour. No tables were thrown, nobody got punched or slapped.”
It is merely the most recent mood swing to this game’s veteran. Many boxers would really like to have conflicts entertaining because the press conferences of Chisora.
And Haye knows first-hand how awful a day can get when Chisora has awakened on the wrong side of the mattress. Their competition began in the summertime following Chisora had dropped his career’s only world title challenge against Vitali Klitschko, in Munich. Haye had too much to sayand he was confronted by Chisora.
Fists flewblood spilled. Chisora’s then-trainer Don Charles suffered the then-trainer Adam Booth of Haye, a broken jaw was cut.
Chisora and Haye dropped their boxing licences but the Luxembourg board agreed to sanction a fight at Upton Park, preluded with a press conference where they had been split by a metal fence. Haye won by knockout.
So when Chisora raised his voice that this week and said”I’m likely to go ballistic”, the room filled with tension and everybody hoped the heavyweight would not come their way.
“They call him’War’ Chisora for some reason,” Haye stated after calming his former foe down.
“He has attracted some of the spite he showed in sparring into the press conference. I saw him thought’I hope he stays where he’s sitting’.
“He has ruffled feathers but that’s Chisora. He speaks in the center.
“Not ideal but Derek is Derek.”
With being hauled into the ire of Chisora prograis and Taylor were not happy, and rightly so.
“It had been disrespectful,” Taylor stated.
Prograis went farther:”I believed that I might need to fight him.”
Dillian Whyte believed the exact same few decades back when the press conference table thrown his way and has been hoisted into the atmosphere by Chisora.
“This is the way it is, man,” Chisora said back then. “I do exactly what I want, when I desire.”
According to Haye, we’re witnessing a Chisora now.
“He realises that time is slowly sinking,” Haye said. “He is 35, maybe not 28 anymore, that is an era at which you can have a loss and it doesn’t really matter. He is huge although he has had plenty of chances.
“Last chance saloon is an old clich?? but that really is it.”
Preparations aren’t going if that’s the situation. The coach who headed Chisora into his last 3 fights, dave Coldwell, is no more working with him and has been replaced.
The promoter of Chisora’s opponent Parker, David Higgins, stated:”It’s a sign of trouble in the camp along with close to the fight. To shed his trainer out this far, along with a trainer that appeared to be a good group, you have got to ask why?”
Nothing has been calm or simple at the livelihood of Derek Chisora – plus we wouldn’t have it another way.
