Heavyweight rivals hog headlines
British heavyweight boxing rivals David Haye and Dereck Chisora are united in their views of the Klitschko brothers' domination of the division.
Haye and Chisora meet on July 14 for the culmination of a feud that has been running since February when the pair brawled in Munich at a press conference which followed Chisora's loss to Vitali Klitschko, who retained his WBC title in the process. Haye was beaten by Wladimir Klitschko in July last year and the 36-year-old added the WBA title to the IBF, WBO and IBO belts he already owned.
"They don't want this fight to take place because it will do is take away publicity from their fights," said Haye. "No-one is talking about their fights, people are only talking about this fight and they don't know how to deal with that."
The two Londoners will meet in a bout controversially sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation and they believe their battle will be of much more interest than Vitali's meeting with Manuel Charr and his brother Wladimir's title defence against Tony Thompson.
Haye added: "They don't want anyone else in the heavyweight division making money and getting publicity and they will do whatever they can to shun this event but people want to see this and people don't want to see what they do - at this point in time anyway."
Chisora echoed Haye's comments and also dismissed the Klitschkos and their K2 Promotions brand.
"For once I'm going to have to agree with David Haye, he is actually right. The trouble with K2 promotions is they always have to slate everyone else," he said.
"They always think they are the biggest and best thing in boxing.
"They are just kidding the sport because by the time you have fought them they have already disrupted you, so you know what - two fingers to them anyway."
With Haye officially coming out of retirement for the fight and Chisora having had his license revoked by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) the bout was picked up by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.
