Haye Trouble: British Board Likely To Reject Chagaev

By Rick Reeno

There could some additional trouble in store for WBA heavyweight champion David Haye. BoxingScene.com has obtained a letter from the British Boxing Board of Control, dated June 4, 2009, which clearly states that mandatory challenger Ruslan Chagaev would not be approved to box in Great Britain. Haye's team has raised their concerns regarded the British Board approving Chagaev due to his struggles with Hepatitis B.

The letter, written by British Board General Secretary Robert W. Smith, states - "With regard to the above [Ruslan Chagaev], I have spoken to Dr. Roger Evans and a number of his medical colleagues and I can confirm that Mr. Chagaev will not be permitted to box in Great Britain."

In the last few days, Haye's fight with IBO/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko crumbled. Klistchko is now going to face Dereck Chisora on April 30 and Tomasz Adamek in September.

Aside from some publicity comments from Haye, I have never heard a bad work spoken about Nikolai. By all accounts, he is a very nice guy.

[QUOTE=Casual;9940105]Is this FACT? [B]If Haye signed to fight Wladimar for July the 2'nd he have been given a pass by the WBA without having to fight Chagaev before July 2'nd?[/B][/QUOTE] I am pretty sure that is correct. Please don't quote…
