Chisora apologises 'wholeheartedly' for post-fight brawl with David Haye

London , Tue, 21 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 21(ANI): Dereck Chisora has apologised "wholeheartedly" for the brawl with former British boxer David Haye in Munich, but has had 70,000 pounds withheld from his purse on the request of the World Boxing Council to save his career.


"I have let my family, my team, and worst of all, the sport I love down. I acknowledge that my actions were totally unprofessional, with or without provocation," The Telegraph quoted Chisora, as saying.


"I feel I must wholeheartedly apologise for my part in the regrettable scenes both before and after what was to be the biggest night of my career," he added.


Haye has also broken his silence on the issue, saying that he "would happily assist the German boxing authorities" in the probe into the incident, while stressing that Chisora "caused a serious disturbance to occur".


But the Munich police will have to seek permission from court to bring Haye to Germany for questioning, which could require the involvement of the Scotland Yard.


A police official confirmed that they are in the impasse situation till they interrogate Haye though they have already questioned Chisora on the incident and released him without charge.


"Until we speak to Haye, nothing more can happen. We've heard Dereck Chisora and now we wait to hear David Haye," he said.


"From what we can see in the videos, and of course there may also be other evidence, it seems to be a case of assault, as well as suspicion of grievous bodily harm, because perhaps a bottle or tripod was also used to hit someone," another Munich police spokesperson Wolfgang Wenger said.


Chisora and Haye had earlier clashed at a post- fight press conference.


Police were called to the scene and are investigating attempted aggravated assault, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years in Germany. (ANI)
