Dereck Chisora has made the bold claim that he will meet David Haye again in the future, following their entertaining clash earlier this month.

Haye was the fifth-round victor in a fight which attracted widespread condemnation for taking place outside the jurisdiction of the British Boxing Board of Control.

Haye, the former WBA heavyweight champion, has claimed he is only interested in continuing to box if he can face Vitali Klitschko, the WBC king, at some point in the future. Haye came out of retirement to take on Chisora at Upton Park.

However, Chisora - who is still without a British licence after having his taken away earlier this year - feels he has enough appeal to lure Haye back into the ring in future.

"It will be another great fight one day," Chisora told iFilm London. "In the future, we're going to go separate ways and then we'll meet up again.

"Expect to see me in the ring again soon - everyone wants to see it. Maybe two months out, and then back in."
