Heavyweight contender Dereck Chisora (15-3, 9KOs) has told London Tonight that he hopes to get back in the ring despite his current ban. Chisora ended up in a brawl with the former world heavyweight champion, David Haye, during a press conference in Germany in February. He was then suspended indefinitely by the World Boxing Council and his license was later pulled by the British Boxing Board of Control.
In his first interview since then, he told ITV's Sally Williams, that he hopes to be back boxing again soon. Dereck says he hopes to be fighting again soon and intends to go back into the gym:
"I can't fit in my old clothes so I have to go back in the gym. I'm not banned... I'm not fit enough to hold a license. I'm a boxer, I'm a fighter. I love fighting. Someone takes something you love, how are you gonna survive and progress in your life? I wanna fight again. I want to fight everybody," Chisora said.
Dereck Chisora is due to appeal the withdrawal of his boxing license by the British Boxing Board of Control on May 14th.
