Chisora's License Update: British Board Sets 3/14 Hearing

Dereck Chisora will be hauled in front of a British Boxing Board of Control hearing on March 14 in relation to his conduct "prior, during and after" Saturday's WBC heavyweight title defeat against Vitali Klitschko in Munich.

The Londoner "wholeheartedly apologised" for his "inexcusable" actions in Germany on Monday afternoon, which the Board had earlier vowed to investigate.

On Friday, the 28-year-old slapped opponent Klitschko at the weigh-in. He then spat water at the champion's brother Wladimir in the ring and brawled with British rival David Haye at the post-fight press conference at the Olympiahalle, threatening to "shoot" Haye. He was arrested by Munich police on Sunday but released after questioning.

In a statement, Board secretary Robert Smith said: "Mr Dereck Chisora has been called to appear before the stewards of the British Boxing Board of Control on Wednesday, 14th March 2012 under Regulation 25 (misconduct) with regard to his behaviour prior, during and after his contest for the World Boxing Council Heavyweight Championship against Vitali Klitschko on Saturday, 18th February 2012 in Munich.

"A further statement will be issued following this hearing."
