David Haye vs Dereck Chisora.

It was one of the most memorable British heavyweight rivalries of all time - largely down to the fact both of them absolutely loved the spotlight.

Throughout their careers, both Haye and Chisora have been known for their outlandish antics and their desire to be in the headlines, whether it be for good, bad, or downright crazy reasons.

So, six years ago, back in 2012, when Haye decided to interrupt a Chisora press conference, it came to no real surprise to all boxing fans.

What did come as a surprise to most, however, was the absolute chaos that soon ensued due to Haye's presence.

As you watch The Hayemaker sipping on his drink with a twinkle in his eye at the back of Derek Chisora's press conference, you just know that he's up to something, or that he's not going to just stand their quietly and mind his own business.

And, with Chisora and Vitali Klitschko going through their post-fight conference, Haye couldn't resist getting in the mix as he attempted to call the Russian out for his next fight.

Once again, David Haye was keen to make it all about himself, and that's why he was at the press conference, and that's why he tried to interfere, despite it being a time to promote Klitschko vs Chisora.

Due to his interference, it's safe to say Chisora got a bit wound up, and he was on the attack, quite literally.

After having to previously make do with low quality video clips of the punch-up, new footage has now emerged of the renowned presser.

With Haye interrupting him from the back of the room, Chisora well and truly takes the bait and the pair become embroiled in scrap in front of the media, with Haye's trainer Adam Booth ending up being covered in blood.
