Dereck Chisora believes that he will have the opportunity to avenge his loss to David Haye in the near future, despite being brutally stopped in the fifth round of their fight at West Ham's Upton Park stadium earlier this month.

The Finchley fighter was at the heart of much contention in the build-up to the fight with former world heavyweight champion Haye as the British Boxing Board of control refused to sanction the bout.

Chisora had come under fire for his actions in Germany where he clashed with Haye at a press conference, but the fight in London generated plenty of interest as 30,000 fans were in attendance to watch the two heavyweights clash inside the ring.

Haye's future is still unclear as he has stated that he would only be interested in a return to action against one of the Klitschko brothers. While a rematch with Wladimir seems a long way from happening, he still hopes to arrange a date with WBC champion Vitali in the near future.

While that contest may yet happen it seems Chisora believes he earned the respect of Haye in the first clash and has done enough to warrant a rematch down the line.

"It will be another great fight one day," Chisora revealed to video company iFilm London. "In the future, we're going to go separate ways and then we'll meet up again.

The former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion also admitted that he plans to take a couple of months off before getting back in the ring.

"Expect to see me in the ring again soon - everyone wants to see it. Maybe two months out, and then back in."
