Former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora has been re-licensed by the British Boxing Board of Control.
The former champ was suspended by the World Boxing Council and at the same time by the board od Control in early 2012 after his press conference punch up with fellow Briton David Haye in Germany.
However, Chisora still fought in 2012 under the Luxembourg Boxing Federation when he fought Haye in a grudge match last July
"I’m glad that this whole episode is finally behind me and I can carry on with my boxing career in my own country and with a British Boxing Board of Control license," Chisora said.
Chisora’s promoter and manager Frank Warren who stood side-by-side with his fighter throughout his exile, said, “I’m delighted that the British Boxing Board Control has made the right decision and re-instated Dereck’s license and the slate is now clean. He is an exciting fighter who always gives 100 percent. We will announce who Dereck will be fighting at Wembley Arena shortly but it’s great to have him back in action and we’ve got some big plans for him."
