The most hotly anticipated boxing match in Britain this year will take place on July 14 at Upton Park, when David Haye meets Dereck Chisora. The pair first clashed in the post-fight press conference following Chisora's losing effort against Vitali Klitschko, when Haye tried to steal some limelight for himself and got attacked by "Del Boy" for his trouble. According to Haye, Chisora has spent much of the time since that scuffle in March stalking him, which led to a second scrape in a London restaurant. Haye is British boxing's biggest loudmouth, while Chisora is its biggest thug. Some think the angry heat between the two men is 100% canned, pre-processed hype, and the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) might block the fight. Still, that hasn't stopped fight fans in the UK from going nuts over the bout, with 17,000 tickets selling on the first day. It's no wonder the Brits are salivating, since this bout has all the classic angles: grudge match, cross-town rivals, fight
