World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman is furious, and informed BoxingScene.com that his organization has fined Dereck Chisora $50,000 dollars for slapping WBC heavyweight Vitali Klitschko during Friday's weigh-in in Munich, Germany.

Sulaiman received reports from the WBC officials on site, who witnessed Chisora attempt to butt heads with Vitali and then the British challenger slapped the champion across the face. 

Sulaiman called it an “absolute disgrace! This is definitely a lack of respect for the sport and completely unacceptable. It was a cheap shot, and my message is that there is a fine, so he’ll [Chisora] feel it! He’s no gentleman at all, and he’s failed in what we expect of boxers. He wanted Vitali to lose control, but Vitali will make him pay for this in the ring, definitely.”

Don Jose says that 50% of the $50,000 dollar fine will go to a childrens’s charity in Germany and the other half will go to the WBC Cares charity, which helps sick children and regularly visits them in the hospital.

[QUOTE=Pin Galarga]If I was Chisora, I would tell Jose that the check is in the mail and wipe my behind with the Green belt. The WBC belt is not worth what it was years ago, they have lost credibility with Jose's last decisions and not worth 50k IMO. Just keep the other belts always that they don...

What did you expect from germans, they are a nation that is infatuated with hard work and discipline, they cant have "unserious music poking fun at spirited effort of hard work in life, blah, blah, blah".

[QUOTE=ИATAS206;11793125]I remember that. Almost as bad as Deontay Wilder getting suspended by the State of Ohio because he did a ring walk to a song that had explicit lyrics[/QUOTE] WTF? Are you serious? LOL! [QUOTE=josenoway]lol WBC. Slap a guy : how dare you! give us 50 grand!...
