Eric Kelly May Be The Greatest Boxing Trainer In History.

If he isn’t then he has to be one of the funniest.

First impressions might lead you to assume that Mr Kelly is arrogant, rude and disrespectful towards the people who train at the Church Street Boxing Gym in New York where he works. But then you discover that those training there are  none other than Wall Street bankers and city traders which means Mr Kelly is well within rights to verbally abuse them. And with such flair too.

Chisora Brawls With Haye At Press Conference.

In case you missed it the integrity and reputation of British boxing took a hammering last night.

It all started when heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora sqaured up to his opponent, Vitali Klitschko, before their big fight during the weigh in and slapped him across the face he then spat water in his opponents face before the first round started. Thankfully Klitschko went on to win the fight and even in defeat Chisora displayed no grace by once again squaring up to the big Ukranian in the ring.

Then came the post match press conference which quickly descended into an episode of The Jeremy Kyle show with Chisora trading verbal insults with former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye who was, for some unknown reason, attending the press conference. Chisora left the stage with microphone in hand, waded through the journalists, confronted Haye face to face and then all hell broke loose. During the fracas Chisora claims that he was glassed by Haye and in retiliation announced that he intends to shoot him.

Detectives refused to confirm whether official action has been taken or whether an investigation is planned.
