German Police were this morning interviewing Dereck Chisora as a part of an official investigation into the events of last night’s post-fight press conference brawl with David Haye.

A Munich Criminal Police spokesman told Press Association Sport that Chisora, and his trainer Don Charles, had been taken from the city’s airport to Police headquarters in Munich for questioning.

The spokesman confirmed also that Police were still searching for Haye, who was not present at the hotel when they sought to question him this morning.

Both boxers were involved in a bloody altercation during last night’s press conference after Chisora lost to Vitali Klitschko on a points decision following their WBC heavyweight title fight.

“Police picked up Mr Chisora at the airport at approximately 10.30am (German time) and are bringing him in for the investigation,” the spokesman said.

“They also picked up Mr Chisora’s trainer for questioning.

“The Police went to the hotel to speak to them but we had been informed they had just checked out.”

Haye’s location, however, remains unknown by the local authorities.

“At present we do not know where Mr Haye is,” he added.

“We are currently looking for him. He was not at the hotel this morning and we have not seen him at the airport.”

Meanwhile Sheffield’s Kid Galahad won the WBC International superbantamweight title in a solid 12-round win over Nottingham’s Jason Booth.

He survived a first round knockdown -- the first points he’d dropped as a professional -- before earning the unanimous decision at Rotherham Magna Centre.
