World Boxing Council bans Dereck Chisora

In addition, the WBC has also indicated that they are going to impose a heavy fine on the Zimbabwean born fighter, the fine of which will be determined by a hearing.

That is not all. According to information that has filtered through, Chisora also faces a life ban as he has been asked to appear before a British Boxing Board of Control hearing on March 14.

Chisora had 50 000 pounds of his 200 000 pounds purse money from the Klitschko fight deducted after he was also found guilty of slapping Klitschko on the cheek during the weight in for the WBC title fight.

Chisora also spat water into the face of the Vitali’s younger brother Vladimir, who holds the WBO, IBF, WBA and IBO crowns, during the pre-fight ceremonies.

The four boxing organisations are still to decide on what course of action to take although there is a possibility they might also take the WBC route and bar Chisora from fighting for Vladimir’s titles.

The WBC have demanded that Chisora take an anger management medical treatment after which his suspension will be then be looked at.

Chisora and Haye were involved in an ugly scene during a Press Conference after Chisora’s defeat by Klitschko. The brawl has been heavily condemned by the boxing public and the authorities saying it has painted a bad picture of the sport of boxing.

On his part, Haye, a former British and World heavyweight champion, is wanted for questioning by German police over his part in the altercation.

Haye retired from boxing in October last year but has also been asked to appear before the British boxing controlling body.

Chisora was born in Mbare, Harare, on December 29, 1983 and moved to the United Kingdom in 1999 at the age of 16. He is based in Finchley, London, England and has fought 18 bouts, winning 15 and losing three.
