Chisora banned for Klitschko slap and spit

Phil Jay 29/02/2012

The WBC have moved to ban British heavyweight Dereck Chisora from fighting for their title until he completes and anger management course, whilst they keep jail-pending champion Floyd Mayweather as their welterweight title holder.

Chisora, 28, was already fined by the WBC for his actions against Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko, along with brawling in the media room post-fight with David Haye – for which he was questioned by police and released without charge.

I think it is a bit hypocritical for the body to ban Chisora and then act ten days after the fight when the sensationalism has died down. Their actions have only added more fuel to the fire and kept the stories running in my view whilst labelling the Briton for the ‘worst behaviour’ ever seen in a WBC title fight.

Vitali Klitschko was already planning to dish out his own means of punishment with a knockout win in a rematch but the WBC’s sanctions may now have put an end to what would have been an entertaining return.

David Haye’s after-fight right hand dished out to Chisora gave the Finchley man another form of retribution for his wild antics and he should now complete the course and give the WBC no more rope to hang him with.
