Chisora's licence withdrawn

2012-03-14 21:21

London - Dereck Chisora has had his licence withdrawn "indefinitely" by the British Boxing Board of Control following his controversial behaviour in Germany last month, promoter Frank Warren said on Wednesday.

Chisora, a 28-year-old Zimbabwe-born Londoner, was involved in several unsavoury incidents both before and after his WBC heavyweight title points defeat to Vitali Klitschko in Munich on February 18.

He slapped Klitschko at the pre-fight weigh-in, spat water in his brother Wladimir's face during the introductions and then brawled with British rival David Haye at the press conference afterwards.

Chisora spent a night in the custody of German police after the clash with Haye and, following a hearing in Cardiff on Wednesday, Warren said the board had withdrawn his licence to box indefinitely.

"His licence got withdrawn and what will happen now is we'll consider whether to appeal the decision," Warren said.
