Description : Here we have the official original poster for the David Haye v Dereck Chisora tear up billed as Licensed to Thrill, was a controversial boxing grudge match that took place on 14 July 2012, at the Boleyn Ground, the home of West Ham United Football Club.

David Haye was present in the crowd at the Klitschko vs Chisora post-fight press conference. During the conference, Haye began a verbal confrontation with both Vitali Klitschko and his manager Bernd Boente, challenging the WBC World Heavyweight champion to a fight. Boente claimed that Haye had already turned down the opportunity to fight Vitali Klitschko and that he would not get a second opportunity. Chisora then intervened, calling Haye an "embarrassment", to which Haye responded that Chisora had lost "three fights in a row".

Haye continued his verbal assault. Chisora then left the stage and, in front of the assembled media, confronted Haye under the pretext of asking a question with the microphone pushed aggressively into the face of Haye & that was it! BANG! CRASH! WALLOP! Haye with beer bottle in hand smashed his fist into the face of Chisora shattering the bottle & a mass brawl kicked off. Haye was pictured holding aloft what appeared to be a camera tripod during the melee smashing it over the head of Chisora's trainer, whilst in the aftermath, Chisora was caught on video threatening to "shoot Haye".

Subsequent to a hearing in March regarding the incident, Chisora had his British boxing license revoked, and the WBC initiated a motion to ban the British fighter indefinitely and fine him for his involvement.The fight was announced as being promoted by BoxNation in association with Team Sauerland and would be held at the Boleyn Ground, one of the largest football stadia in London. Tickets went on sale on the 9 May, with over 17,000 tickets being sold on the first day of sale. On 18 May, it was announced that the fight had been sanctioned by both the WBO and WBA and licensed by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.

In front of a packed Boleyn Ground, in which 30,000 spectators attended, Dereck Chisora was the first to enter the ring, hooded and masked, to the theme from Gladiator. David Haye delayed his entrance, not beginning his approach until after his entry music, "Ain't No Stopping Us Now", had begun. The fight started slowly, with both boxers moving cautiously, though it was Haye who took the attacking initiative first. The bout heated up at the end of the third round, when Chisora caught Haye with a fierce left hook after the bell had already gone, which appeared to shock Haye. Chisora emerged at the start of the fourth round with more confidence, aiming punches towards Haye's chin. Towards the end of the fifth round, Haye connected with a series of punches, knocking Chisora to the floor. At the eighth count, Chisora regained his feet, only for Haye to land further punches. Chisora was knocked down for a second time by a left hand from Haye, and though he regained his feet again, referee Luis Pabon stepped in and awarded the bout to Haye by TKO.
