LONDON

Boxer David Haye is glorifying his infamous bare-fist punch-up with fellow British heavyweight Dereck Chisora by coming out with an iPhone game in which he attacks his rival with a bottle.

David Haye's Knockout

David Haye's iPhone game features him using a bottle as a weapon against his opponent.

Haye is still wanted by German police for questioning after he lunged at Chisora with a bottle hidden in his glove at a news conference following Chisora's defeat to Vitali Klitschko in February.

His iPhone game, David Haye's Knockout, shows him peeling off a glove to reveal a bottle, which he uses to decapitate his opponent.

The app will intensify the controversy around the former world heavyweight champ's fight with Chisora on July 14 at London's Upton Park, which has been condemned by the World Boxing Council.

"So much fuss was made about the bottle in my hand in Munich that I decided to have some fun with it," Haye said. "People will moan about it, but I have a simple message — keep your money in your pocket and don't buy it."

Using a violent game to promote an upcoming fight is old hat to Haye. Before losing to Wladimir Klitschko last year, he released a game app that allowed players to punch the head of the opponent.
