Boxing champ Wladimir Klitschko denies brawling with Dereck Chisora inside Ibiza nightclub

Did he or didn't he?

It's safe to say the Klitschko brothers aren't very fond of Dereck Chisora.

At the weigh-ins for the Englishman's bout with elder brother Vitali last year, Chisora slapped the heavyweight champion, failing to provoke a response. Spitting on younger brother Wladimir just before the fight was similarly unsuccessful, earning Chisora only a condescending smile.

Dereck would go on to lose a decision, then brawl with David Haye at the post-fight press conference.

Now there are reports coming in that Wladimir and Chisora had a run-in at an Ibiza nightclub not long after Chisora scored an extremely controversial knockout over previously-unbeaten U.S. heavyweight Malik Scott, in which a clearly-lucid Scott rose at nine and was counted out regardless.

The two apparently had to be separated by bouncers.

It should be noted, however, that Klitschko has denied these reports on his official website, claiming that he lets his fists only talk inside the ring.

"I'm quite shocked by the recent British media stories about an alleged brawl between myself and Dereck Chisora. I am a professional prize fighter and let my fists do the talking only inside the ring. I don't want to comment on Chisora's psychological issues."

Considering that spitting on Wladimir had no effect and that both brothers are known for their unflappability, Vitali refusing to retaliate against Dereck after the slap and even abstaining from a brawl in Ukraine's parliament, it's best to take the story with a grain of salt.

Klitschko is currently scheduled to face Alexander Povetkin this October. Povetkin has twice dropped out of this matchup, prompting Wlad to famously pose with a cardboard cutout of Povetkin at a press conference he ditched. After drawing a black eye on it, of course.

Chisora does not have a fight scheduled (nightclubs don't count).
