Fight promotes thuggery - Maloney
- From the section Boxing
Boxing promoter Frank Maloney thinks the fight between Dereck Chisora and David Haye sends out the wrong message to young fans, saying "these guys are two losers, it's happening because of a punch-up in a press conference".
The two fighters were involved in a brawl following Chisora's defeat by Vitali Klitschko in Munich in February, and will now face each other in a fight sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation on 14 July at Upton Park.
However, British heavyweight David Price thinks the fight could boost the sport, saying "it might get more people over to boxing and could turn out to be a positive thing".
