THE BRITISH BOXING Board of Control has threatened to remove the license of anyone involved in the David Haye-Dereck Chisora fight.
A fight between the two boxers is scheduled to take place on July 14 at Upton Park, after a fight was sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.
And a statement from the BBBoC released today expressed disapproval of the fight:
“The Articles of Association… of the British Boxing Board of Control, to which every member has agreed to be bound, make it perfectly clear that the object of the BBBoC is to control and regulate boxing in the United Kingdom.
“Any member of the BBBoC who participates in any way in a promotion such as that referred to above would thereby evince an intention not to be bound by the Constitution of the BBBoC and would act in a manner wholly incompatible therewith.
“In such circumstances the BBBoC would accept that member’s repudiation of the Constitution as terminating his/her membership of the BBBoC and his/her licence.”
The statement added:
“Those behind this proposal are not concerned with the interests of the sport of boxing.
“Anyone who participates will be deemed to have terminated their membership.”
