Haye Waits For British Board's Final Ruling on Chagaev

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of the Daily Star

DAVID HAYE has to wait to see if his next opponent – Uzbekistan’s Ruslan Chagaev – is allowed to fight in the UK.

Haye, 30, will defend his WBA heavyweight title against Chagaev after talks to face Wladimir Klitschko fell through.

But Chagaev may not be allowed to box in Britain due to a history of suffering from hepatitis B.

Chagaev tested positive for the virus in 2007, then failed a medical ahead of a fight against Russian Nikolai Valuev in Finland in 2009, causing the match-up to be cancelled.

The former WBA champion has since boxed three times in Germany, where he is based though boxers have been prevented from boxing in Britain due to hepatitis.

British Boxing Board of Control secretary Robert Smith said: “We are still waiting on the medical reports. When we get them our medical people will look at them and decide whether he can box here or not.

“We have a situation where we have had boxers in the past who have been refused permission to box here because they had hepatitis B.”
