Haye's pledge.

DAVID HAYE has vowed to succeed where he claims the British justice system failed - by sufficiently punishing Dereck Chisora.

The British heavyweight rivals will be given the chance to settle their differences after brawling in Munich five months ago when they clash at Upton Park tomorrow.

Underdog Chisora, pictured, has convictions for public order offences, assaulting a police officer and possession of an offensive weapon.

The 28-year-old was also found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend two years ago but was spared jail, instead landing a 12-week prison sentence suspended for two years.

"Chisora's not a nice man, not a nice human being," Haye said.

"I don't like anything he represents.

"He needs to be punished because the law hasn't punished him. He's never done any hard time.

"The British Boxing Board of Control haven't really punished him, he's still here, so it's left to me to punish this guy and I'll do that.
