Chisora: Haye will have no place to run on July 14th
By Michael Collins: Dereck Chisora (15-3, 9 KOís) and former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-2, 23 KOís) will be meeting up for their grudge match on July 14th in Upton Park, and Chisora feels that Haye wonít be able to get away from him in the small ring that theyíll be fighting in. Chisora doesnít see Haye as a legitimate heavyweight and instead feels heís a cruiserweight fighting in the heavyweight division.

Chisora said on Bunceís boxing Hour ďDavidía puppet. Iíll let him sell the fight. Hayeís my puppet. Iíll leave it to David. Heís never fought anyone like me. I know for a fact heís a cruiserweight. Heís going to be 15 Ĺ stone. Heís going to try and use speed to run away. Too bad weíre using a small ring this time. Thereís nowhere to run, and heís going to get it. Heís going to get itÖI just hope David comes ready because Iím going to be ready.Ē
Letís hope that Chisora will be ready because he canít afford yet another loss at this point in his career. Chisora has lost three out of his last four fights, and itís critical that he not suffer yet another defeat. Chisora had an excuse for his loss to Robert Helenius in that he fought well enough to get the win, but was perhaps jobbed out of the decision. However, thereís no excuse for Chisora coming into his fight against Tyson Fury 20 pounds overweight at 260 lbs.
If he had medical problems that got in the way of his training then he should have cancelled the fight. But it was insane for Chisora to come into such an important fight like in such poor condition. Fury ended up easily beating Chisora by a 12 round unanimous decision. In Chisoraís last fight against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitsachko last February, Chisora was dominated by the 6í7Ē Vitali, losing the fight by a 12 round unanimous decision. Chisora fought well but he wasnít able to put his punches together to win more than a small handful of rounds against the injured Vitali. The fight likely would have been a lot more one-sided had Vitali not injured his left shoulder early in the fight. Vitali was forced to use his right hand from the 3rd round on to win the fight.
Haye hasnít fought since losing to IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko last year in July. Haye didnít have the size or the strength to compete with Wladimir.
