David Haye TKO5 Dereck Chisora!
Very impressive performance by David Haye. That’s what we used to expect from the Hayemaker, and if he’s going to fight like that, then sure, I’m in to see him take on Vitali Klitschko or Alexander Povetkin, why not?
The two men actually have a gracious seeming exchange after the fight, so I suppose the beef has been squashed. Great win and great performance by Haye.
