Chisora applying for new British boxing licence

Dereck Chisora is re-applying for his British boxing licence after it was revoked following his disgraceful brawl with David Haye in Hamburg last February.


The London heavyweight settled his differences with Haye at Upton Park in July when he was stopped in the fifth round of an entertaining grudge match.

That controversial fight took place under the auspices of the Luxembourg Boxing Federation but Chisora (29) will now make his case to the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC).

If successful, he plans to make his return on the undercard of George Groves’ clash with Mohamed Ali Ndiaye for the vacant European super-middleweight title. World champions Nathan Cleverly and Ricky Burns will also be in action on the same night.

Sportsmail understands that the BBBoC are yet to receive Chisora’s application.
