David Haye becomes Dereck Chisora new manager

Over six years ago Dereck Chisora and David Haye were bitter enemies after a run-in at a post-fight press conference in Munich which saw both boxers lose their licenses and subsequently face each other in the ring to put the feud to bed. Haye famously knocked Chisora out in the fifth-round of their July 2012 Upton Park meeting but now the pair will become business buddies.

Haye doesn't believe that 'Del-boy', now 34, has reached his full potential still, but also openly states that he will be a hard project as he is not the easiest to work with.

The Zimbabwean-born Londoner is coming into the new management deal off the back of a career-best win against Carlos Takam last July. Chisora came back from a shaky start to knock the tough Frenchman down twice in the eighth-round, finishing him a lot quicker and more clinically than heavyweight kingpin Anthony Joshua managed to.

Former conqueror Dillian Whyte also enjoyed a career-high the same night when he defeated former WBO World heavyweight champion Joseph Parker on points in the headlining fight of the night.

Fight fans have been calling for a rematch ever since December 2016 when Del and Dillian both went at it for a full 12-rounds which ended in a split decision defeat for Chisora.

David Haye has already stated his intention to make the return fight between the pair and believes that his new charge Chisora should have been awarded the decision in their first fight. He further stated that if Dereck can known Whyte out, it would send a shockwave around the world and lead to a world title fight.
