Below is the full unedited release from the British Boxing Board of Control



The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) have received the full support of the World Boxing Council (WBC) concerning the heavyweight contest between Dereck Chisora and David Haye in London sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.


In a letter from WBC president Jose Sulaiman, the WBC confirmed that those involved in the fight would be dismissed from the WBC if the fight went ahead. He also condemned once more the behaviour of Dereck Chisora in his WBC World title challenge to Vitali Klitschko in Munich in February.


“We will expel Luxembourg from our organisation if the commission went ahead as well as any person or institution that has relations with them,” wrote Sulaiman. “We will not condone such a disgraceful behaviour (from Chisora) after seeing that this boxer has no idea of what good behaviour is, by accepting to participate in the intent to threat and embarrass the organisation of boxing with such an act.


“I am sure the European Boxing Union is on the verge of a strong position against Luxembourg; I am also furious with the promoter who is trying to blast the ethics, honesty and seriousness of the sport of boxing.”
