British heavyweight boxers Dereck Chisora and David Haye are facing lifetime bans from the sport following their ugly brawl in Munich over the weekend, according to reports out of England Monday. The pair got into a punch-up Saturday night during a post-fight news conference following Chisora's defeat to WBC world champion Vitali Klitschko. According to The (London) Daily Telegraph sources, the German Boxing Federation is pursuing a lifelong ban for both men and has contacted the British Boxing Board of Control requesting that Chisora's license be revoked. Chisora was arrested by German police and released without charge for his involvement, and authorities still want to talk to Haye, the former WBA champion. Police went to the German hotel Haye was staying in at 4 a.m. Sunday, but he had already left to fly back to Britain, The (London) Times reported. Munich police spokesman Gottfried Schlicht told the Telegraph they would be speaking with British police about getting in contact with the two-time nominee for BBC's Sports Personality of the Year. Haye attended the fight as a commentator for a British outlet. During the news conference following Klitschko's unanimous points victory, he began yelling to the Ukrainian, demanding a fight. After the Klitschko camp dismissed the calls, Chisora became involved, mocking Haye for his poor performance against Klitschko's brother Wladimir last year, which cost him his world title. The pair then engaged in a yelling match, with Haye branding Chisora a three-time loser, before Chisora left the stage with his microphone in hand to confront Haye face to face. Almost as soon as a stare-down developed, Haye landed an elbow on Chisora's jaw, and the two began brawling. Haye also hit Chisora's trainer, Don Charles, and swung a tripod at one of Chisora's friends, while Haye's trainer, Adam Booth, was hit in the melee and suffered a cut on his forehead. Haye left the room after a few minutes, and Chisora told Booth, "David is going to fight me, or I'm going to shoot him. I'm going to shoot him in the street. I'll burn him." Both the Klitschko brothers were present but did not get involved. Wladimir Klitschko reportedly stood on a chair, laughing while the mayhem took place. Chisora, a 28-year-old Londoner, was earlier fined $50,000 for slapping Vitali Klitschko during the weigh-in and was unsurprisingly booed and jeered by the 12,000-strong crowd as he made his way to the ring before the Ukrainian's glitzy entrance. Adding to the drama, Chisora spat water in Wladimir Klitschko's face shortly after his brother entered the ring, apparently in response to the heavyweight brother's pre-fight delay tactics.
