Daily Sport will be at Upton Park tomorrow lunchtime for the biggest announcement and if true the worst kept secret in Boxing when promoter Frank Warren is rumoured to be announcing a fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora to take place on July 14th at the football stadium.
As it currently stands the fight would not be licenced by the BBBofC the UK governing body due to Chisora’s current ban which his is appealing against and the fact that Haye retired last October and did not re-new his boxers licence. Speculation is that should the fight take place that it will do so under the auspices of the Luxembourg Boxing Federation whose UK rep is Bruce Baker of the PBPA.
Rival promoters have already called on the BBBofC to ban the fight and any licenced official or promoter engaging in the staging of the fight. There certainly look as if there will be a lot of legal wrangling ahead which will be a feeding frenzy for the lawyer concerned.
Daily Sport says – We will all be the wiser after tomorrow lunchtime and only time will tell as to what course this promosed promotion will take.
