WBC Furious: Chisora Fined $50,000 For Klitschko Slap!

By James Blears

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.

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".
