WBC ready to take action
The World Boxing Council has warned it will expel any person or organisation involved in the David Haye and Derek Chisora fight.
Chisora was suspended indefinitely by the WBC in February after he was involved in a brawl with Haye following his bout with Vitali Klitschko. Haye is officially retired from boxing so he does not hold a licence either and the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) refused to issue a licence to either boxer ahead of a proposed bout between the duo. However, Haye and Chisora are still preparing to meet at Upton Park this summer in a fight licensed by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation. The BBBofC threatened last week to remove licences from anyone involved in the organisation of the fight, including manager Frank Warren. Now WBC president Jose Sulaiman has stepped into the row, promising heavy sanctions for all those involved. In a letter to the BBBofC, he said: "We will expel Luxembourg from our organisation if the commission went ahead, as well as any person or institution that has relations with them. "I am sure the European Boxing Union is on the verge of [taking] a strong position against Luxembourg. "We will not condone such disgraceful behaviour [from Chisora]. This boxer has no idea of what good behaviour is."
