Promoter Frank Warren believes that Dereck Chisora and David
Haye should settle their differences in the ring.

the green light for negotiations with Haye.
"It's a natural fight, it doesn't matter what anyone
says. It's a bigger fight than either of them fighting
Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko," Warre...

of taking easy fights in defence of his WBO title.

defence against Robin Krasniqi and his last outing against little
known American Tommy Karpency.
"I'm the one coming off the loss, but I'm fighting a better
opponent than him," said Bellew...

Gary Buckland was in another thrilling fight last weekend when
he defended his title against Paul Truscott. It was a good win for
Gary, who always gives 100 per cent. I am very proud of him and
everything he's achieved. He came back from a defeat against John
Murray then moved down a weight and went on to win the British
But I do think his win was over shadowed a little bit by what
happened in the fight between Enzo Maccarinelli and Shane
McPhilbin. I didn't actually see th...

British light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew next month.
The former European titlist, 32, aims to make a short and brutal
night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Friday April 13.
"I wanna smash his face in!" McIntosh exclaimed.
"I'm ready to fight now! I could fight him tomorrow! I wanna
