In a statement the World Boxing Council declared Chisora had committed “one of the worst behaviours ever by a professional boxer”
Dereck Chisora has been handed “a serious fine” and “an indefinite suspension against fighting again for a WBC title”.
In a statement the World Boxing Council declared Chisora had committed “one of the worst behaviours ever by a professional boxer” and said the ban would not be reconsidered until Chisora had undertaken anger management classes.
It’s the first round of sanctions imposed on the former British champ after his conduct at the WBC heavyweight title fight against Vitali Klitschko earlier this month in Munich.
In reality the WBC’s ban is unlikely to impact on Chisora’s existing options as he was unlikely to fight for their title again anyway.
The more crucial date in his diary is March 14, when the British Boxing Board of Control could impose a lengthy ban in a misconduct hearing.
The WBC statement said: “The WBC is absolutely condemning the behaviours that are not to be accepted in boxing under any circumstances and will act as soon as it can proceed to impose the fines and sanctions as we consider necessary.
“The WBC is imposing a serious fine to be finally determined after the hearing.
“The WBC will also take off from the WBC rankings the name of Dereck Chisora and declare an indefinite suspension against fighting again for a WBC title, while demanding Chisora to take an anger management medical treatment after which his suspension will be reconsidered.”
British boxing was left embarrassed after the ugly altercation with David Haye following Chisora’s defeat to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.
Chisora started the confrontation and Haye landed the first blow with a fist clutching a glass bottle.
Haye then fought with Chisora’s trainer and attempted to hit him on the head with a camera tripod.
Zimbabwe-born Chisora, 28, claimed Haye had “glassed” him and repeatedly vowed to “shoot” and “burn” the former WBA champion. He has since apologised for his actions while Haye has not.
Befopre the bout at the Olympiahalle, which he lost on points, Chisora slapped opponent Klitschko.
He was arrested by Munich police but released after questioning.
Afterwards, Chisora issued an apology. He said: “Following the extensive media coverage that my WBC world heavyweight title challenge against Vitali Klitschko in Munich has attracted, I feel I must wholeheartedly apologise for my part in the regrettable scenes both before and after what was to be the biggest night of my career.”
Chisora was at the ringside for the WBA heavyweight title fight between Alexander Povetkin and Marco Huck in Stuttgart, Germany, at the weekend. It is not known where he headed after the fight.
