Frank Warren's Open Letter To Sulaiman on Chisora Ban

DERECK CHISORA has been banned indefinitely by the WBC for his behaviour at the Vitali Klitschko fight. His promoter, Frank Warren, is unhappy and has penned an open letter to WBC president Jose Sulaiman.

By Frank Warren

Mr. Sulaiman,

I wish I could accuse you of having double standards. But I can't, because I question whether you have any standards at all.

The way you have banned Dereck Chisora indefinitely, without even having the decency to call a hearing to establish the facts surrounding his recent bout against Vitali Klitschko, in my opinion shows you as a posturing, self-righteous egotist.

I learned of your decision through the media. You didn't even let the British Boxing Board of Control, myself or Dereck know before you spoke to the world's Press.

In any democracy, any man is innocent until proven guilty. But you appear to have set yourself up as judge, jury and executioner as far as Dereck is concerned.

You have announced an indefinite WBC ban on Dereck without a hearing and you have also said you will impose a 'serious' fine after you eventually do hold a hearing.

Again, you have found Chisora guilty without establishing any fact about what truly went on that night in Munich.

Not for one minute am I condoning what happened before the fight or with David Haye at the Press conference after the bout. I also believe boxing needs to discipline boxers who step out of line.

But I am staggered by how you have treated Dereck before you have heard any evidence from his side. It seems to me this is just a matter of convenience for your organisation.

Let me remind you how your organisation has dealt with other instances of indiscipline by boxers who wave the WBC flag.

Antonio Margarito was banned for a year by the California State Athletic Commission following the controversy over his hand wraps in the fight against Shane Mosley. He was accused of using some kind of plaster to make the bandages harder.

Without any WBC hearing, Margarito was then allowed to fight for a minor title in Mexico and made top contender to fight Manny Pacquiao.

Take Floyd Mayweather Jnr's case, after he was found guilty of physically abusing a girlfriend.

You said the WBC should not touch Mayweather's career or title as you wanted him to fight Manny Pacquiao.

I would like to remind you of the time you were injured in the brawl that took place between Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson, when Tyson disgustingly bit Lewis during the Press conference prior to their fight.

You didn't call for a ban and rang me asking if you should sue those who hosted the conference and broadcast the fight because of the lack of security.

That is one of my issues with the events in Munich. But you don't seem interested in what actually happened.

If Dereck Chisora was a world champion, would you be taking this stance?

Yet more self serving tripe, spewed from the mouth of one of boxings many hypocrites. With this being such an open and shut case, was there really any need for a hearing?

Sulaiman together with Bob Arum is one of the guys that's causing serious damage to boxing sport integrity. Letting him in his position taking this kind of decisions without no one to stop him just show how rotten boxing is…

They're both c*nts, but Suleiman is a bigger c*nt so I applaud Warren for this.
