British Boxing Board of Control General Secretary Robert Smith is not ruling out the possibility of life bans for shamed boxers David Haye and Dereck Chisora following their brawl in Munich. The boxers clashed in a press conference following Chisora’s defeat at the hands of WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.
Chisora mocked Haye, who was covering the fight for television, for his poor performance in losing to Vitali’s brother Wladimir last year and tried to talk him into an all-British fight after the Klitschkos’ manager said the brothers were finished with British fighters after protestations from Haye at the back of the room. The pair then met at the back of the room, where punches were thrown and a mass brawl broke out. The sport has been quick to condemn the incident, and Smith says the punishment for the duo could be severe.
