David Haye is the new WBO and WBA international heavyweight champion after he defeated Dereck Chisora by technical knockout in the fifth round.
The fight had been surrounded in controversy since the pair first brawled at a press conference in Munich after Del Boy lost on points to Vitali Klitschko in February.
But the duo delivered an excellent fight in the pouring rain at Upton Park, which will have endeared them to the public again.
The pair tested each other out early on with Haye appearing to edge the opening two rounds, landing some neat jabs on Chisora.
Del Boy fought back at the start of the third, landing two heavy blows on Haye’s jaw but the Bermondsey-born fighter responded well with several quick punches.
As the round drew to a close the pair exchanged big hits with Chisora knocking Haye, wearing normal trainers instead of boxing boots, off balance with a strong left-hand strike.
The Hayemaker landed a hefty uppercut in the fourth which appeared to stun his opponent but Chisora was able to compose himself and strike back again with a brace of hits across his enemy's cheek.
Haye’s agility and pace began to show in the fifth as he ducked and dodged his opponents’ slow shots.
The fight then sprang into life as the Haymaker knocked Chisora to the deck with several swift strikes to his adversary.
Del Boy survived the referee’s count but soon there was no way back for the Zimbabwe-born boxer as Haye landed another emphatic flurry of punches to floor Chisora, with the ofiicial declaring the Hayemaker the victor.
