Haye vs Chisora: British Board Backs Off Their Threat!

The British Boxing Board of Control had an embarrassing climb down today - withdrawing its threat to automatically terminate all of its members’ licences if they participate in the Haye v Chisora fight.
 
I still take the Board’s threat to call me to account for my role in the fight as Dereck Chisora’s manager as unlawful.  The Board seems to have pre-judged the issue without hearing the point of view of any of its members and this is just wrong.  I intend to issue proceedings next week and will support all other licence holders who feel intimidated into not participating in the Haye v Chisora promotion.
 
I may not be the only one suing the Board.  The Board has also stopped fighters such as Kevin Mitchell, who I also manage, from fighting on the undercard.  This is such a shame as Kevin was looking forward to fighting in front of the crowd at West Ham and it would have been great for the fans to see him again.  He is asking the Board to re-consider and it may be forced to do so rather than face proceedings from Kevin for the purse he would have earned together with the lost opportunity to fight in front of 40,000 people.

good news. I was wondering....without Warren exactly how many fights would the Board be sanctioning? Seems like they'd be out of a lot of money losing the opportunity to hold his events with his fighters, and at the same time…

The BBBC made a mistake by just taking away Chisora's licence instead of imposing a ban. If they had give him a ban this fight wouldn't be taking place in the UK.

Damn right, what were they thinking? They really should have acted more carefully before issuing half arsed threats to everybody involved. Here's the statement detailing their pathetic U-turn: [URL="http://www.bbbofc.com/notices/01-06-12-0"]http://www.bbbofc.com/notices/01-06-12-0[/URL]
