British heavyweight champion Derek Chisora says he’ll fight Audley Harrison if David Haye is not man enough. Haye and Harrison are bickering in the press ahead of a possible showdown later this year, but Del Boy has told Haye to put up or shut up – or he’ll step in. “Make your mind up Haye, because I’ll quite easily knock out Harrison if you can’t do it,” said Chisora. “You are running away from the Klitschko brothers like a thief in the night, if you can’t beat a powder-puff like Harrison, you should pack up. Harrison still hasn’t won the British title that he promised to do inside eight fights when he turned pro. He’s now had 27 fights, I’ve got the British title so if he wants to finally come good on his promise here’s his chance. To be honest, I can’t believe he’s close to getting a world title shot after needing a lucky punch to beat Michael Sprott. If he gets in the ring with me, I’ll knock him spark out. The future of British heavyweight boxing is me, not an old man like Harrison.”
Chisora will defend his British title against Commonwealth champion Sam Sexton on September 18 as part of Frank Warren’s Magnificent Seven card at the LG Arena, Birmingham.
