Yesterday at Bad Left Hook I brought you the story that David Haye was keeping in shape ahead of possible fights against either Klitschko brothers.

As you all know Derek Chisora doesn't hold back with his thoughts, and this time it's no different. Chisora has laughed off David Haye's claims from Monday, that if he got the chance to fight one of the brothers he would once again be Heavyweight champion.

Chisora will go toe-to-toe with Vitali for the WBC belt on Saturday 18th February at the Olympiahalle Munich in Germany. The 28-year-old Londoner told Frankwarrentv that Vitali would knock Haye out if they were to meet in the ring in the future.

Haye had his chance to back up all the pre-fight bull he came out with against Wladimir, but he put up that embarrassing performance and then topped it by blaming it on the injured little toe. I can't see how the British public will forget about that and now he's coming out with the same bull again by saying he will go to war and win his title back against Vitali.

I think it's just embarrassing, Wladimir made a laughing stock out of him and Vitali would knock him out. Haye should stay retired and out of the sport, he had his time and failed on his biggest night, now I'm going to go out there and show him how to fight a Klitschko.

While Haye attempts to keep himself in the limelight, Chisora is working harder than ever in his Finchley Gym with the fight just a month away.

One things for sure I won't be going into the ring like a scared rabbit like Haye did, I'm going to give it everything I've got to win the world title. I'm in great shape, training hard and ready to go right now. This is the most focused and prepared I've been for a fight and I'm looking forward to it. It's a big job, but I'm going to out to Germany with the aim of ending the Klitschko reign of heavyweight boxing, starting with Vitali.

It's pretty clear then by his interview that Chisora won't be inviting Haye to his post-fight after party should he win. 'Del Boy' is well known for voicing his opinions, but trash talking Haye won't get him anywhere against Vitali. Yes fair enough, Haye's excuse and performance were laughable, but he has unified the Crusierweight division and become a Heavyweight Champion. So far Chisora has won the British belt and on the way up the rankings put in a shoddy performance against Tyson Fury - who lets be honest isn't exactly ready for the World elite just yet.

So Derek as much as I would like you to win being a fellow Brit, please shut up for once about the past and concentrate about a bloody hard fight you've got in a month.
