Frank Warren Expects Chisora Appeal Ruling in a Few Days

By Terence Dooley

Frank Warren has revealed to Steve Bunce of BoxNation that the result of Dereck Chisora's appeal against his ban for his part in February's press conference brawl with former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye is expected to revealed in the next few days.  Chisora verbally confronted Haye after losing a wide decision to Vitali Klitschko for the WBC title in Munich.  Haye felt threatened when Chisora stepped off the podium to approach him and responded by hitting his British rival with a straight right, the resulting chaos saw Adam Booth, the trainer of Haye, accidentally hit with a flying tripod and the incident cast the sport in a bad light.

Chisora, 15-3 (9), was given an indefinite ban after a hearing in March yet Warren feels that the heavyweight contender could be given some good news by the BBBoC.  "He's appealed and we'll see where that goes," said Warren when appearing on Bunce's Boxing Hour.  "We'll probably find out tomorrow or the day after [if the appeal has been successful].  I didn't feel that the hearing was right, the way it was conducted wasn't correct.  He should pay some sort of penalty, but you can't take away the guy's living."

"Del Boy" has become a bigger name by virtue of his recent notoriety.  The 28-year-old was in Russia recently and is rumoured to be in the running to face Alexander Povetkin for the WBA title should the Russian overcome former two-time titlist Hasim Rahman on July 14.  The Londoner slapped Vitali prior to their showdown, he also spat water in the face of Wladimir Klitschko right before the fight.  These actions have proven enough to generate interest in Chisora due to the lack of depth in the division, should he get his title back he may find himself in a major fight before the end of the year.
