Haye-Chisora: LBF Starts Legal War With British Board

The Luxembourg Boxing Federation and a number of licence holders have today issued legal proceedings against the British Boxing Board of Control in relation to its behaviour over the Haye v Chisora fight on 14 July 2012.  This is not something anyone wanted to do and neither is it a step we took lightly, but we felt we were left with no option.

We have issued proceedings to prevent the Board from intimidating its own members into not participating in the fight.  The Board has admitted that it can do nothing legally to stop the fight but it is still threatening to call its licence-holders to account for their involvement.

The fight is going ahead on 14 July and over 28,000 tickets have been sold.  This is a fight that the public want to see and is being broadcast live in the UK on BoxNation, EPIX in America, Sky Germany and in more the 60 countries.

Go Luxembourg!!! I hope they get the British Board on their knees, after the way they behaved they need a good spanking. First off, how are you going to indefinitely suspend Chisora? That's got to be the worst ruling I've…
