Frank Warren Vows Nothing Will Stop Haye vs. Chisora

Boxing promoter Frank Warren has again moved to quash rumours that the controversial bout between British heavyweights David Haye and Dereck Chisora may not take place.

The pair notoriously traded blows in Munich in February, when they clashed at a press conference which followed Chisora's loss to Vitali Klitschko.

The fall-out was a messy one, with Chisora having his licence rescinded by the British Boxing Board of Control

(BBBofC) while Haye, who is technically retired, was largely unrepentant.

The fight, due to take place at Upton Park in east London on July 14, has been sanctioned by the little-known Luxembourg Boxing Federation.with neither Haye nor Chisora currently licensed by the BBBofC.

The British board have said they would rescind the existing licences of anybody involved in the promotion but Warren is ready to give boxing fans the fight he believes they want to see.

"This is a good fight, a quality fight," he said.

"What happened in the past happened, it was months ago. The guys are not banned from boxing, the fight will take place - it is a good fight and as I said it is a fight the fans want to see.

"Whatever these guys have got against each other, (they can) sort it out and settle it in the ring and that is what is going to happen on the 14th of July. The fact of the matter is...this fight is sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation and is also sanctioned by the WBO, that is what it is, the rest of it doesn't matter."

Haye believes a victory for him would bring an end to the dispute between the fighters.

"As far as I'm concerned there was beef beforehand, I settled it in Germany but he didn't quite get that memo so he wants to do it and get paid for it, so once I do it again I'd assume that would be it," he said.

"I will have beaten him twice so he can say 'that's it, you're the better man' and we can go about our lives but whether he accepts that or not is up to him."
