Vitali Klitschko beats Dereck Chisora, who calls out David Haye after the fight

As expected, the Klitschko-Chisora post-fight presser was a circus

Dereck Chisora was already acting a fool before the fight even started, so why wouldn't we expect more of the same after he lost a unanimous decision to Vitali Klitschko?

Chisora may have been outclassed by Klitschko, but he's definitely keeping himself relevant by making a name for himself and keeping people interested.

SI's Chris Mannix offers a solid timeline for the post-fight events, and they were truly insane.

Before the fight even happened, Vitali's brother Wladimir went into Chisora's locker room to inspect his hand wraps, and made Chisora re-wrap them. Chisora proceeded to almost fight Wladimir on the spot, and spit in his face.

Wladimir showed impressive restraint. "The hardest thing I have ever done was not break his face," he told Mannix. It's a good thing that he didn't, because it would have taken a nice payday away from his brother, as Mannix pointed out on Twitter later.

After the fight, there were plenty more antics from Chisora. It started with David Haye, a fellow fighter who was there commentating on the fight. Haye called out both fighters, Chisora came offstage to confront him, they got in each others faces, Haye threw an punch, and melee ensued.

Warning: This video contains some NSFW language.

I'm not sure either guy really deserves an opportunity to fight a Klitschko again, even though Chisora and Vitali Klischko's management basically agreed that the winner of a hypothetical Haye-Chisora bout could face Vitali.

Right now, Chisora's last fight was a loss to Vitali Klischko, and Haye's last fight was a loss to Wladimir. The Klitschko brothers have dominated the heavyweight division. The most recent Klitschko loss, between the two of them, was in 2004 when Wladimir was TKO'd by Lamon Brewster, a loss he later avenged. Since then, he has won 14 straight fights. Vitali's last loss was in 2003, and he has 12 straight victories.

Fortunately for Chisora and Haye, they now have a viable fight option, and it should be easy for them to promote this one. The hard part might be avoiding assault charges for these shenanigans outside the ring.
