World Boxing Council Takes a Strong Stand on David Haye and Dereck Chisora

The World Boxing Council has threatened to issue a ban to anyone taking part in the eagerly awaited fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora.

The WBC has supported the stance taken by the British Boxing Board of Control and has set a heavy price for those wishing to take part in the Luxembourg Boxing Federation sanctioned event.

However, the WBA and WBO have both given the bout their backing and each will place a belt on the line for the July 14 scrap.

The fight, due to be held at West Ham’s Upton Park is expected to be a sell-out- promoter Frank Warren claiming that half of the 40,000 capacity was sold within two days of the fight being announced.
