12th July 2012
It will be this Saturday night on 14th July in Upton Park stadium home to West Ham football club where they will prove themselves as professional boxers and who indeed is the better fighter and whether this will prove to the public and professional boxing organisations if this process goes forward towards a title fight and if their respect can be gained back in a professional capacity as well.
Yesterday during the press conference in North London Camden Town they sat separated by a metal barrier and security guards and tested one another’s patience. Frank Warren alongside Chisora gave an explanation of his prediction on how Chisora will win this fight, he went on to say, “We’ve got a natural heavyweight here, who’s got a good chin probably got one of the best chins in the business and he’s young.” One of the highlights that developed was the confirmation of both fighters taking blood tests.
David Haye did not seem impressed with what he heard from Frank Warren, he said “My training’s gone good, I’m fit and fast and I believe you’ll see the best Hayemaker on Saturday night, he’s getting knocked out quick.” He went on to say “The harder he comes, the quicker he gets knocked out.”
His public workout session in Blue Water Shopping Center just a few days ago showed how fast he was on the pads with his trainer Adam Booth, he was in a serious sombre mood, not distracted by the fans he continued to show off his skills.
This certainly will be “Licensed to Thrill” as it is headlined, Chisora said, “I’m going to be the craziest I’ve ever been and I took my medication before I came here, so I’m chilled out.” In response to Haye’s comments he went on to say that Haye was paranoid, “He’s paranoid and he know’s what’s coming and we’re going to give the fans a great fight David’s a believer and we’ll see and I’m excited about the fight and everything’s good right now and we’ll see on the night.”
Chisora went on to say that winning will mean a lot to him, “It’s all about the fans loving the fight and at the same time stepping up a game, it’s gonna be a great for the public and I can’t wait for the fight to happen.”
Even though David Haye has been Britain’s outstanding fighter in the last decade and dominated the cruiserweight division and unified the WBA, WBO and WBC titles he may be in for a surprise, Chisora has gained more experience in his last four fights, on this occasion he may indeed put David Haye back to retirement, with the confidence looming from Frank Warren his promoter and the calmness of Chisora after the press conference was in a humorous mood with a serious note.
Don Charles his trainer also present at the brawl in Germany stated yesterday to the press that the public have grown to love Chisora and is sudden unusual behaviour could be down to him having autism, he said, “Dereck is an extrovert, he’s an eccentric character and can he predictable, I haven’t had it tested but I believe he is autistic, there are also other things he has, which I won’t reveal, that make him the kind of character he is.”
He also stated that it has been challenging for him, he went on to say, “He’s very hard to train, but that’s what makes him the fighter he is, you can’t remove that animal instinct from him because if you do, you’ve killed him as a fighter.”
