London - Dereck Chisora has regained his British boxing licence a year after it was stripped following a brawl with fellow British heavyweight David Haye at a news conference.
The British Boxing Board of Control withdrew Chisora's licence in April 2012 after he tangled with Haye at a news conference in Munich after he lost to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.
Chisora, a former British and Commonwealth champion, used a Luxembourg licence when he and Haye fought each other in London in July. Haye knocked him out in the fifth round.
Promoter Frank Warren says Chisora was reissued with a licence Tuesday ahead of his April 20 comeback fight. His opponent has not been named.
Chisora says "I'm glad that this whole episode is finally behind me."
