Chisora loses boxing license

Derek Chisora Klitschko vs. Chisora Klitschko-ChisoraBy Sean McDaniel: Earlier today the British Boxing Board of Control withdrew former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora’s boxing boxing license due in part to the brawl Chisora was involved in after his loss to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko last month on February 18th in Munich, Germany. Chisora met before the BBBofC on Wednesday in Cardiff and the result was Chisora’s boxing license was withdrawn for an indefinite period of time.


Chisora’s promoter Frank Warren said to sportinglife.com “His license got withdrawn and what will happen now is we’ll consider whether to appeal the decision.”

Chisora has only 14 days to appeal his ban.


With an indefinite ban, Chisora could get his boxing license back after a certain period of time such as six months or more. However, without a date being given it puts pressure on him to start making other plans such as fighting outside of the UK. Chisora could be taking a risk by sitting and waiting for the ban to lift because there’s a possibility that it never will. He could wait six months, one year or permanently. That’s the negative about a ban without a definite time frame involved. It almost forces Chisora to make a quick decision about whether he’s willing to wait for something that may never happen.

In addition to the controversial brawl that Chisora was involved with in mix-up with former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye, Chisora also slapped Vitali in the face in the weigh-in a day before the fight, and then on the night of the fight, Chisora spat water into the face of Wladimir Klitschko.
