DERECK Chisora has been detained by police at Munich Airport after the bloody brawl with David Haye which followed his loss to Vitali Klitschko on Saturday night.
The 28-year-old was intercepted along with his trainer Don Charles at an airport check-in desk as part of an official investigation, with Haye also to be questioned about the remarkable scenes which unfolded after Chisora’s unanimous points defeat to WBC heavyweight champion Klitschko.
Police said they were still searching for Haye, who was not present at his hotel when they arrived to question him.
“Police picked up Chisora at the airport and brought him in for the investigation,” a police spokesman confirmed.
“They also picked up Chisora’s trainer for questioning.
The spokesman added: “At present we do not know where Mr Haye is.
“We are currently looking for him. He was not at the hotel this morning and we have not seen him at the airport.”
After losing a brave 12-round decision to Klitschko, Chisora mocked the onlooking Haye for his poor performance against Klitschko’s brother Wladimir last year and tried to goad his rival into a future bout.
Chisora then confronted Haye during the press conference and the two men grappled around the room with onlookers and entourages getting involved. Chisora was seemingly heard making threats and claiming to have been “glassed”.
Haye is then captured on film trading punches with Charles before swinging a large camera tripod over his head at the trainer. Moments later Chisora re-appears brandishing a glass bottle but is wrestled under control.
Haye’s manager Adam Booth suffered a nasty cut on his forehead and also claimed to have been “glassed”.
“”If David Haye is a fighter he should fight me. Let’s fight, me and you.”
