WBO and WBA Side With Warren, Back Haye vs Chisora

It was confirmed today that David Haye and Dereck Chisora's heavyweight showdown on Saturday 14th July will be for the WBO International and WBA Intercontinental titles.
 
The pair meet in one of the most eagerly awaited fights in recent years at West Ham United's Boleyn Ground in East London, live on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456/Virgin Ch. 546).
 
The British Boxing Board of Control are both affiliated with WBO and WBA organizations.

Paco Valcarcel, president of the WBO, said, "We have to go ahead and approve the fight.  The Luxembourg Boxing Federation is a member of the WBO and the problem is between the LBF and the British Boxing Board of Control, not the LBF and the WBO."
 
Also confirmed for the "Licensed To Thrill" card, being staged by BoxNation in association with Team Sauerland and Hayemaker Boxing Ltd, is Alexander Povetkin's WBA World Heavyweight title defence against former WBC/IBF Champion Hasim Rahman on the show which will be sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.

It looks like the plan is for Haye to be WBA champ again by the end of the year and get a mandatory Wlad rematch, assuming Vitali doesn't fight him.

Chisora is a tough boy. but let's be honest here everyone it's over. I know we all like Chisora and his madness and his thug antics. But let's stop the ****ing train for a moment and put on our thinking…
