It was confirmed Haye and Chisora will fight at Upton Park in east London on July 14.
The pair sparked outrage by brawling after Chisora’s world heavyweight title defeat to Vitali Klitschko in February.
And the animosity has not abated as they traded insults through a seven-foot steel fence at a press conference.
‘This is definitely personal,’ Haye said later. ‘We genuinely don’t like each other.
‘This fight is about eradicating boxing of an idiot. I will give him a nice, slow, concussive beating.’
Chisora lost his licence over his antics in Munich, so organisers got around that issue by getting the Luxembourg boxing federation to sanction the fight.
‘I truly believe he has a screw loose, a few screws loose actually,’ said Haye, who is coming out of retirement for the bout.
Chisora, in the same Union Flag face mask he wore when slapping Klitschko in the build-up to their fight, hit back at his opponent, saying: ‘I will do the ****. I apologised for saying I’d shoot him. I never want to take a father from their kids but I do want to whoop his a**.’
The British Boxing Board of Control criticised the decision to stage the fight, with general secretary Robert Smith saying: ‘We’re obviously not happy about it.
‘Another country has come into our jurisdiction and overruled us.’
