Boxing: Ban threat over Haye v Chisora
Thursday 10 May 2012
The British Boxing Board of Control has warned that all individuals involved in the heavyweight fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora on 14 July will be stripped of their licences.
The Board is determined to come down hard on the fight, which is sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation despite neither Haye nor Chisora holding licences to box in Britain. The Board's warning means any licence holder – including the promoter, managers, seconds and other fighters on the bill – will be deemed to have broken their membership terms and will therefore be stripped of their licence.
The Board said in a statement: "Any member of the BBBoC who participates in any way... would evince an intention not to be bound by the Constitution of the BBBoC. In such circumstances the BBBoC would accept that member's repudiation of the Constitution as terminating his/her membership of the BBBoC and his/her licence."
