Haye lightest for grudge fight with Chisora
Fri, 13 Jul 2012 10:04a.m.
David Haye will face Dereck Chisora at his lightest as a heavyweight in their all-British grudge fight at Upton Park this weekend.
Haye weighed in at 95 kilograms, less than a kilo lighter than he weighed in his last fight a year ago, a points loss to Wladimir Klitschko in a title unification bout.
Chisora was 17 kilograms heavier than Haye at 112kg. Chisora was nearly 3 kilos heavier than when he lost to Vitali Klitschko on points in February.
The aftermath of that fight spawned this one, as Chisora (15-3, 9 KO) and Haye (25-2, 23 KO) came to blows in the post-fight news conference.
With the British Boxing Board of Control unwilling to licence either fighter, the Luxembourg Boxing Federation has sanctioned the non-world title fight, which has already sold more than 29,000 tickets.
