Dereck Chisora and David Haye (both banned) Will finally fight July 14th
IT’S on! David Haye WILL fight Dereck Chisora in the grudge fight of the century — thanks to The Sun.
They clashed in a bare-fist punch-up in Munich in February and neither holds a current fight licence.
FACE OFF ... Dereck Chisora and David Haye will meet on July 14
But we are smashing through the bureaucracy to bring you the fight every fan wants to see.
As official sponsors, The Sun can confirm the heavyweights — who traded blows at a Press conference after Chisora lost his world title clash with Vitali Klitschko — will meet at West Ham’s Upton Park on July 14.
The British Boxing Board took Chisora’s licence as punishment for a spitting and slapping confrontation with Klitschko BEFORE their Munich fight.
Haye returned his licence after he lost his WBA title to the younger Klitschko, Wladimir, in Hamburg.
But Frank Warren, Chisora’s manager, has beaten the red tape by getting licences from authorities in Luxembourg.
He said: “Before anyone starts screaming let me point out the Luxembourg boxing association was formed in 1922 seven years before the British Board.
“They have given their approval for the bout and it will go on at Upton Park under their jurisdiction.
“As fully fledged members of the European Boxing Union, that is what they are entitled to do.
“I never said Dereck shouldn’t be punished but the Board here withdrew his licence — they did not ban him so he can apply to any boxing board.”
On the undercard Alexander Povetkin defends his WBA heavyweight title against Hasim Rahman.
^What caused all the controversy and got them banned from British boxing^
