Haye weighs in lighter than Chisora

BY foxsports • July 12, 2012

David Haye will face Dereck Chisora at his lightest as a heavyweight in their all-British grudge fight at Upton Park on Saturday.

Haye weighed in on Thursday at 210 pounds, half a pound than he weighed in his last fight a year ago, a points loss to Wladimir Klitschko in a title unification bout.

Chisora was 37 pounds heavier than Haye at 247 pounds. Chisora was nearly 6 pounds heavier than when he lost to Vitali Klitschko on points in February.

The aftermath of that fight spawned this one, as Chisora (15-3, 9 KO) and Haye (25-2, 23 KO) came to blows in the post-fight news conference.

With the British Boxing Board of Control unwilling to licence either fighter, the Luxembourg Boxing Federation has sanctioned the non-world title fight, which has already sold more than 29,000 tickets.
