Wladimir Klitschko has revealed that he was 'shocked and embarrassed' by Saturday's brawl between Dereck Chisora and David Haye.

The Brits and their entourages scuffled during the press conference after Chisora's points defeat to Vitali Klitschko in Munich.

"I am shocked and deeply embarrassed by the actions of Dereck Chisora and his team over this past week," the younger Ukrainian wrote in an open letter. "But even more embarrassing and disgraceful to the sport was the post-fight press conference.

"With journalists from all over the world in attendance, this same man Dereck Chisora, got into a fight with Adam Booth, the trainer of David Haye, and David Haye himself.

"For all of the great champions from the past that have been polishing the image of the sport of boxing and giving it the glamour, respect and recognition while setting a good example for the youth of the world to follow, this type of behaviour kills all that hard work from the former champs and teaches disrespect for the sport and fellow human beings."

After releasing Chisora without charge, German authorities have said that they would like to speak to Haye about the incident.
