Haye (left) and Chisora: both are ready to settle the score in the ring on July 14
David Haye is determined to put an end to his bitter rivalry with Dereck Chisora by beating his fellow Brit in the ring on July 14.
The two heavyweights will get the chance to settle their differences when they go toe-to-toe at Upton Park, though Haye and Chisora have already come to blows before.
"As far as I'm concerned there was beef beforehand, I settled it in Germany but he didn't quite get that memo so he wants to do it and get paid for it, so once I do it again I'd assume that would be it."
David Haye Quotes of the week
The pair became involved in an infamous brawl at a post-fight press conference in Munich after the latter had lost to Vitali Klitschko in February.
The fall-out led to Chisora having his license revoked by the British Boxing
Board of Control (BBBofC), meaning their upcoming bout is being sanctioned by the little-known Luxembourg Boxing Federation.
"As far as I'm concerned there was beef beforehand, I settled it in Germany but he didn't quite get that memo so he wants to do it and get paid for it, so once I do it again I'd assume that would be it," Haye said.
"I will have beaten him twice so he can say 'that's it, you're the better man' and we can go about our lives but whether he accepts that or not is up to him."
Both men have vowed to curb their questionable behaviour outside of the ring, though Haye couldn't help but question some of his opponent's previous antics.
"In the ring I have never really done too much to break the law - even outside of it," he said.
"Whereas I've seen him bite people, so I don't think people should put the spotlight on me because I'm a consummate professional inside and outside of the ring, this guy has a history of being the polar opposite of that.
"Outside the ring you have seen what happened, he has had a whole load of madness going on but inside the ring we have rules and they have to be abided by and I'm not training to break any rules - I'm looking forward to going out there and doing a job."
Chisora insisted he was remaining calm ahead of the bout but also claimed he will "not behave" in the ring as he looks to defy the odds and defeat the former WBA heavyweight champion.
"Right now I am behaving myself, after the fight I will try to behave myself but in the ring I'm not going to behave myself because it is two animals in a cage and we are going to rock it out," he said.
"There are going to be fireworks, everyone wants to watch this fight, it has to happen because David keeps talking.
"All I say is it is going to be a great fight and I would love my opponent to come out of the ring healthy and in the same way and same for me. I just hope he is coming to fight because I'm looking for this sucker."
