Interesting video. What should happen now.....
Haye should get the Vitali fight that he's agreed terms too and Boente should stop trying to prevent that. Just get the f***ing fight fought.
Of course we then have all the rematch clause shit to sort out, but ideally the winner of Haye/Vitali should just meet Chisora. Grudge fight either way, and Chisora deserves to fight either a rematch against Vitali or have a British blockbuster against Haye.
Regarding the criticism of Haye in the brawl. Well Haye had a bottle in his hand, so no surprise that went in. You don't really get time to ask for an intermission and calmly place your bottle down when its kicking off. Anything goes.........but in fairness Haye appeared to throw a punch whilst holding the bottle rather than trying to smash the bottle across Chisora's head/face. He's lucky he didn't slice his hand open. But no way would i call that a bottling.
It was an ugly incident but of course it was going to go off. Got two fighters squaring up publicly with tempers exploding all around. Both were angry and neither could be seen to back down even if they wanted too. If that was to be prevented then there is no way that they should have been allowed to get so close in the first place. There was enough people there to stop that happening and apparently there was security in there too.
But as many people as will be tutting and shaking their heads publicly, there will be a great many who'll privately be rubbing their hands together with glee....the rights or wrongs of the brawl notwithstanding, the heavyweight division is finally heating up after years of being freezing cold!
And from the British perspective, well Haye and Chisora are the two most attractive opponents out there for the Klitschko's by some way. And a fight between Haye/Chisora would be pretty big now too. If that was a rain cloud over British boxing and the sport....well i reckon its got a silver lining!
Nothing personal, mate, but that is utter bollox frankly. Folk who support this kinda stuff have got American wrestling and Jeremy Kyle they can watch FFS. I am utterly amazed at how many people I thought to be serious boxing fans, think this is all Ok.
1. So you don't regard that as a proper 'bottling' then? Great, but let's forget the bottle for a minute and turn our attentions to the attack with a camera tripod, which caused injury to his own trainer/manager, and could've been a whole lot more serious. Do you rate that as a proper 'tripodding' then?
2. Why were these two 'squaring off publicly' at all? There's no history between them, Chisora is not on the supposed Haye comeback list, and there was no reason for it whatsoever, other than to appeal to the base instincts of those who would be better off behind bars!
3. You call THIS the Heavyweight Division finally heating up? That is about the dumbest thing I've heard on the subject ever! If it is to 'hot up', we need someone to challenge the undoubted talents of the two guys who stood bemused watching the disgraceful spectacle being put on by these British idiots.
4. Boxing is a sport, and as with any sport relies heavily upon the discipline it requires to be successful. I'm not entirely sure you'll understand that, but the key is DISCIPLINE. None of which was present with these numpties. For folk to glorify this utter shite beggars belief and serves further to convince me that the once noble sport which I have loved has no place in modern society. How proud I am today to be old fashioned!
