Dereck Chisora’s Licence Withdrawn “Indefinitely” By BBB Of C - Warren Deciding Whether Or Not To Appeal
By James Slater: Moments ago at The British Boxing Board of Control HQ, former WBC heavyweight title challenger Dereck Chisora’s licence was withdrawn “indefinitely.”
Due to his controversial conduct both before and (especially) after his recent fight with Vitali Klitschko - when “Del Boy” slapped Vitali at the official weigh-in, then spat water in the face of younger Klitschko brother Wladimir in the ring whilst awaiting the opening bell and then, most seriously of all, got into a post-fight brawl with fellow Brit David Haye - Chisora’s career is now in the balance.
Smiling as he left the Board’s HQ and wearing dark glasses, Chisora now has 14 days in which to appeal the decision. It is unknown if the former British champ will ever be permitted to fight again.
Promoter Frank Warren had only a short statement:
“His licence got withdrawn and what will happen now is we’ll consider whether to appeal the decision.”
