Chisora to get WBC hearing

World Boxing Council president Jose Sulaiman said Wednesday the body will hold a proper hearing "as soon as possible" for Dereck Chisora despite already handing the Briton an indefinite ban and a heavy fine following his behavior before and after his heavyweight title bout with Vitali Klitschko in Munich.

Chisora slapped his Ukrainian opponent at the weigh-in and spat water at Klitschko’s brother Wladimir just prior to the contest, before being embroiled in a brawl with British rival David Haye at the post-fight press conference.

The WBC confirmed the ban on Tuesday in a statement, in which it said it was "demanding Chisora take anger management medical treatment after which his suspension will be reconsidered."

Chisora’s promoter Frank Warren hit out at the comments and questioned how a punishment could be issued without an official process.

Sulaiman, however, insisted there will be a hearing and said there was light at the end of the tunnel for Chisora if he met their demands.

"He is a human being so we’re not going to put him in the trash. He made a mistake. He must pay for the mistake but also we have to give him another opportunity," Sulaiman told Sky Sports.

"We’re going to have a hearing … It will take place as soon as possible."
