Dereck Chisora Could Have His Boxing License Revoked

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DERECK CHISORA is facing a lifetime boxing ban after brawling with David Haye in a post-fight press conference.

The British heavyweights clashed after Chisora had lost on points to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko on Saturday night.

Chisora was later arrested by German police but Haye slipped out of Munich yesterday morning.

The British Boxing Board of Control have launched an investigation and are considering the ultimate punishment for Chisora by revoking his licence to fight.

Board supremo Robert Smith said: “It was just crazy and unacceptable. It was a shameful night for British boxing.

“I’m embarrassed and disappointed and they should be ashamed of themselves.

They have let themselves and boxing down.”

Haye can also expect to be punished, even though he is currently retired.

He wants to return to the ring to fight Vitali, but will face a battle to convince boxing chiefs that he deserves a new licence after this night of shame. Chisora threatened to shoot Haye after the pair threw punches and traded insults in scenes televised worldwide.

It was the culmination of a week of mayhem for Chisora.

He slapped Klitschko at the weigh-in and spat water into the face of Vitali’s world champion brother Wladimir before the fight.

Promoter Frank Maloney said: “He should be banned for life. He has tarnished years of good work by professionals in a sport that has its knockers.

“This has given those ­knockers more ammunition. We used to have people who challenged for world titles, but handled themselves with dignity and class.

“Chisora was a disgrace and Haye was as bad. He was there for a TV company at that press conference yet he tried to steal the limelight by his shouting.”

Chisora was arrested by police after checking in for his flight home but was released without charge. Police did not find Haye after he left on an early flight to London after altering his plans.

Trouble flared at the post-fight press conference. TV pundit Haye taunted Vitali about their proposed bout later this year, with Chisora angry at his fellow Londoner stealing the spotlight.

Chisora mocked Haye for his poor display against Wladimir before storming towards Haye. The two men grappled around the room, with onlookers and entourages getting involved.

Chisora claimed he had been “glassed”, while Haye traded punches with Chisora’s trainer Don Charles and caught his own trainer Adam Booth on the head with a camera tripod.

Chisora then publicly threatened to shoot Haye before police arrived to calm the situation.

Slapping and spitting on people is going to get you a bottle over the head every time. How this type of behavior helps anybody's chances against the Klitchkos is my question? It's about boxing, not spitting and slapping or breaking…
