Haye - Chisora fight on - Warren
Promoter Frank Warren has confirmed that the controversial showdown between David Haye and Dereck Chisora will go ahead as planned.
Warren is the brains behind the bout which will see the two British heavyweights go head-to-head in the ring at West Ham's Upton Park on July 14.
However, it is shrouded in controversy because the duo traded blows at the press conference following Chisora's February defeat against Vitali Klitschko in Munich.
Chisora subsequently had his licence rescinded by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) while Haye, who is technically retired, is no longer in possession of a licence.
But the little-known Luxembourg Boxing Federation has sanctioned the fight, despite objections from the BBBofC who have threatened to rescind the existing licences of anybody involved in the promotion.
It resulted in rumours that the fight would no longer take place, but Warren has moved to assure boxing fans that it will be going ahead as planned.
"This is a good fight, a quality fight," he said.
"What happened in the past happened, it was months ago. The guys are not banned from boxing, the fight will take place - it is a good fight and as I said it is a fight the fans want to see.
"Whatever these guys have got against each other, (they can) sort it out and settle it in the ring and that is what is going to happen on the 14th of July. The fact of the matter is...this fight is sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation and is also sanctioned by the WBO, that is what it is, the rest of it doesn't matter."
