Dereck Chisora (L) is punched by retired boxer David Haye (R)
Updated at 7:20 a.m. ET: Police have detained British heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora following his brawl with former WBA champion David Haye at a post-fight press conference on Saturday night.
Police spokesman Gottfried Schlicht told The Associated Press that Chisora and his coach were detained at Munich airport and were being questioned.
Schlicht said police are still looking for Haye, who wasn't at his hotel and "we don't know where he is."
The brawl occurred during a news conference after Ukrainian Vitali Klitschko retained his WBC heavyweight belt, scoring a unanimous points decision over challenger Chisora in Munich's Olympic Hall.
Haye, who had been working as a television pundit, became agitated by comments made by Klitschko's manager, Bernd Boente, and began to heckle from the back of the conference.
That escalated until Chisora finally grabbed a microphone and stepped down from the main table into the media seating area to confront Haye.

Dereck Chisora (L) of Great Britain talks with a bloodied David Haye's manager Adam Booth (R) after a brawl between Chisora and Haye on Saturday night.
Haye's manager Booth suffered a cut above his eye following the scuffle, thought to be caused by a camera tripod knocked over in the melee.
The whole incident took place in front of dozens of cameras, and can be seen in this uncensored YouTube clip, uploaded by sports website bokser.org, which contains audible bad language throughout.
"I'm totally disappointed, it went a little too far, the sport of boxing shouldn't be like that," Klitschko told the BBC after watching the fight.
The BBC reported that Chisora allegedly threatened to shoot Haye follwing the incident. It said Chisora accused Haye of "glassing him", before saying at least four times that he would shoot Haye, adding: "If David don't fight me, I am going to physically burn him."
