One of the most controversial fights in recent years takes place this weekend as David Haye and Dereck Chisora go head to head at Upton Park on Saturday evening, with Bet365 offering free bets, live stream and report all the money has been for David ‘Haymaker’ Haye coming into the fight.
These two lost a lot of fans when they had a brawl at a press conference earlier this year of course, but there is still plenty of demand for this fight, even if they had to go through a Luxemburg boxing licence to make it happen.
Referring to Chisora to begin with, it is fair to say that he isn’t the most popular man in boxing. Constantly mouthing off about his ability and criticising other fighters, Chisora hit a new low for many when he spat in Wladimir Klitschko’s face back in February.
However, leaping to the defence of his antics, he has said that his big mouth secures paydays for him and his team. The 28-year-old is controversial, provides talking points and as far as he is concerned, is entertaining.
There are a massive number of people that would enjoy seeing him knocked out this weekend though. However, he will relish the negative reception he is bound to receive.
As for Haye, well he has had an interesting few months. He retired from boxing after losing to Wladimir Klitschko last year of course. The former heavyweight Champion then made plenty of TV appearances before the brawl with Chisora in February’s press conference.
Some people were very unhappy with Haye’s antics on this now famous evening, but it has set up this weekend’s fascinating fight. Regardless of the critics, millions will be watching and there is no doubt that Haye is the man everyone expects to win.
Whatever happens, it is sure to be explosive fight in front of a lively Upton Park crowd. With their reputations on the line, both Chisora and Haye will be determined to deliver the knockout blow.
