Tonight, in the world of Boxing, David Haye, the man who is impossibly good looking for a boxer, put his reputation (and perhaps his life) on the line to fight Dereck Chisora, the man who threatened to shoot him in February! At stake were the WBO and WBA international heavyweight titles.
In a very wet Upton Park Chisora was first in the ring to the sound of extremely loud boos from the crowd. Then came Haye, bounding in to his signature theme “Ain’t no stopping us now” while the crowd chanted at Chisora “Who are you? Who are you?”, leaving us all in no doubt as to who the crowd wanted to win!
Chisora had predicted that he would win this fight in the 7th round. In the end though it was Haye who was the victor in the 5th – it was an incredible finish with classic stuff from Haye, a left and right combination straight from the textbook. Chisora’s legs went and Haye finished him off within 10 seconds. Haye was ecstatic, Del Boy looked a broken man.
Congratulations David – looking forward to the next one – but will it be against Klitschko?
