Chisora and Haye face charges that could end them up in prison!

German prosecutors have confirmed that David Haye and Dereck Chisora are suspected of offences punishable by prison sentences, according to reports, while Chisora has been called in by Britain's boxing authorities.

The BBC report that police suspect Haye of grievous bodily harm. If the former world heavyweight champion were found guilty, he would face a minimum term of six months in jail.

German authorities have confirmed that they want to question Haye.

"Of course we still want to talk to Mr Haye and question him to find out about his involvement," Munich police spokesman Wolfgang Wenger said.

"There are of course investigations centred on him and the prosecutor will decide here how to get hold of him, whether this will happen in England or here. The judiciary must decide how to proceed...

"We need to question Mr Haye and the others who were involved and then we need to decide if there will be further questioning. The investigations are underway and these need time and thoroughness.

"It wasn't very easy to see immediately what exactly happened. This is also part of the investigations. From what we can see in the videos, and of course there may also be other evidence, it seems to be a case of assault, as well as suspicion of grievous bodily harm because perhaps a bottle or tripod was also used to hit someone."
Sage to say Chisora will have a hefty fine and/or suspension for this, Haye will have major issues also getting his License reinstated if the german authorities wish to take things further.

Things about to get interesting me thinks.

German authorities would put you in jail if you get caught riding the subway without a valid ticket*, but when it comes to physical harm to people, they are quite soft.













* No joke, there is a prison in the Berlin area where about 1/3 of the inmates are convicted for surreptitiously obtaining a ride on public transportation.

Chisora kept saying he was going to shoot Haye I believe.

I dont think they should be charged. This is boxing, not figure skating. Give Haye was acting like a douche, but Chisora shouldnt have gotten out of his seat. I think the people that were holding the press conference should have had a little more control of the situation. Did no one think that it may be a good idea to stop these guys from squaring off?

I was thinking this watching the video. I was like there is no way they are just going to let him walk right up to Haye...

In principal yes, they are both grown up men and showed in that situation that they wouldn't mind getting physical, but breaking a glass bottle on someones head is a criminal offence and thus a state attorney must initiate a court inquiry. Even though if the case is likely to be dropped.
