David Haye has blamed Dereck Chisora for instigating their brawl at the news conference following Chisora's loss to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Haye says Chisora ''caused a serious disturbance to occur, something which threatened to damage the reputation of the sport we both love.'' Haye adds that he is ''bitterly disappointed'' over his part in the brawl but did not apologize. Haye is wanted for questioning by German police over the mayhem, but confirmed he left the country Sunday morning. British boxing's governing body has opened an investigation into Chisora's conduct in connection to Saturday's title bout in Munich. But it cannot take action against Haye because the Londoner retired last year after a defeat to Kiltchko's younger brother, Wladimir.
