David Haye vs. Dereck Chisora Results: Haye Defeats Chisora Via 5th-Round KO
In one of the most personal boxing matches of the year, it was David Haye defeating Dereck Chisora on Saturday night via fifth-round knockout to win the WBA Intercontinental and WBO Heavyweight International championships.
Looking at this fight, it is amazing how much bad blood can come out of just one incident that took place five months ago. In case you forgot, Chisora and Haye got involved in a brawl at a press conference following Chisora's loss to Vitali Klitschko.
That one incident led to Haye coming out of his short-lived retirement. Despite not having the kind of long, drawn-out build that some of the best matches in boxing history have had, this was one of the most anticipated fights of the year between this two British rivals.
What Is The Bigger Story?
Haye wanted to destroy Chisora. Chisora wanted to destroy Haye. Ultimately, Haye was able to prevail to win both championships in front of 30,000 frenzied attendees in Upton Park, London.
For Haye, 26-2, the fifth-round drubbing was a great moment. Following his loss to Wladimir Klitschko last July (which had its own considerable buildup, courtesy of Haye), no one knew what to expect from Haye versus Chisora. Granted, he did not have the longest layoff between fights, but you still wonder how much ring rust he is going to have.
At just 31 years old, Haye is still very much in his prime, so it's not like he had a lot of work to do to find himself.
Chisora, 15-4, on the other hand, is going to have to figure out where his career is taking him. He has now lost four of his last five fights. At 28, there is time for him to turn things around and climb back up the heavyweight rankings.
