THIS IS NOT RIGHT!: GERMANY BOXING BOARD CONDEMNS CHISORA/HAYE BOUT

The German Boxing Board (BDB) has joined the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) in opposing the fight between David HAYE AND Dereck Chisora.


The contest, due to take place at Upton Park on 14 July, has been sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.

BDB president Thomas Putz said: "I was surprised, disappointed, upset and shocked when I heard [about the] fight between Dereck Chisora and David Haye.

The BDB has written to the European Boxing Union (EBU) and the BBBfoC in support of the board over the proposed clash. 

Chisora was suspended indefinitely for his role in a brawl with Haye in Munich but has appealed against that verdict, and Haye has not renewed his licence since his retirement from the sport in October 2011.

The World Boxing Council (WBC) has said they  could expel both fighters  while a statement from the British board read: "Anyone who participates will be deemed to have terminated their membership."

Putz has joined his WBC counterpart Jose Sulaiman to urge the EBU to expel the LBF - and for the sport to stand firm in condemning a bout described by Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko as a ''freak show''
