British authority threatens Haye-Chisora fight


LONDON (AP) - British boxing's governing body has warned that anyone involved in the fight between British heavyweights David Haye and Dereck Chisora will be stripped of their licenses.

The July 14 bout at West Ham soccer club in London will be sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation because the British Boxing Board of Control refused involvement because neither fighter has a license.

The fighters brawled at a news conference in Munich five months ago, leading to Chisora losing his license. Haye failed to renew his last year.

The BBBC says it will clamp down on any license-holder, including the promoter, managers and other fighters on the bill.
