Dereck Chisora regains British boxing license

Dereck Chisora has regained his British boxing license a year

after it was stripped following a brawl with fellow British

heavyweight David Haye at a news conference.

The British Boxing Board of Control withdrew Chisora’s license

in April 2012 after he tangled with Haye in Munich after he lost to

WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.

Chisora, a former British and Commonwealth champion, used a

Luxembourg license when he and Haye fought each other in London in

July. Haye knocked him out in the fifth round.

Promoter Frank Warren says Chisora was reissued a license

Tuesday leading to his April 20 comeback fight. His opponent has

not been announced.

Chisora says ”I’m glad that this whole episode is finally

behind me.”
