British heavyweight Dereck Chisora was detained by police after losing a title bout to Vitali Klitschko and then brawling with former WBA champion David Haye at a post-fight news conference.

Chisora and his coach, Don Charles, were held at the Munich airport Sunday and later taken to police headquarters for questioning, police said.

"Then we will decide whether to proceed further (with charges)," police spokesman Gottfried Schlicht told The Associated Press.

Schlicht said the police were still looking for Haye, who wasn't at his hotel. The Munich-based Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported that Haye went straight to the airport after the brawl Saturday night and took a flight at dawn.

Police were considering possible charges of causing bodily harm and attempting bodily harm. Chisora was heard vowing to shoot Haye.

"I swear to God, David, I am going to shoot you. I am going to shoot you. I am going to physically shoot David Haye," Chisora was heard yelling as he claimed that Haye hit him with a glass.

Chisora's promoter, Frank Warren, called the brawl "ugly, horrible and disgraceful" but said it was not his boxer who threw the first punch.
