After a few days of disgraceful behavior leading up to, before and after the biggest fight of his career, heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora and his trainer, Don Charles, were arrested at a Munich Airport around 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning, for their part in the post-fight brawl between them and fellow heavyweight boxer David Haye's camp according to BBC Sport.

With details still unclear, it is known that Chisora and his trainer were taken in for questioning surrounding their post-fight melee.

The fight, which took place after Chisora was defeated by WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, was a bizarre ending to an already bizarre few days.

At the weigh-in for the Chisora-Klitschko fight, Chisora slapped Klitscko during a stare-down, which grew buzz around the fight. To add to his weekend of disgrace, Chisora then spit a mouth full of water onto Klitschko's brother Wladimir's face during another stare-down that took place in the ring, just before their fight began on Saturday.

The police also urged Haye to turn himself in in order for police to further their investigation in the post-fight melee—they said they had missed him at the hotel he was staying at in Germany.

Chisora has successfully turned the biggest fight of his career into an embarrassing circus display for the whole world to see.

Chisora gave Klitschko a quality fight and it is a shame that he chose to pull the ridiculous antics to overshadow anything he did in the ring.

In the end, the events that took place are another black eye for the sport of boxing—Chisora and Haye should have saved the fight for a sanctioned boxing event in the ring, not a WWE-style scene outside of it.
