Haye-Chisora is still on! Luxembourg chose to sanction fight...

Haye & Chisora face-to-face at press conference at Upton Park.
The highly anticipated showdown between David Haye and Dereck Chisora at Upton Park on July 14th is still on. The Luxembourg Boxing Federation have decided to sanction the fight despite threats of expulsion from the European Boxing Union.

There was a meeting held by the LBF with 12 members attending. According to reports, 8 out of the 12 members voted in favour of sanctioning the controversial bout so the federation will still be sanctioning the fight.

Apparently there were a few other sanctioning bodies that were willing to sanction the fight if Luxembourg decided not to. The boxing world has been completely split down the middle because of this fight. There are many people that believe that this fight is a complete and utter travesty that should never take place but then there are many others who do not mind this fight happening at all. One thing that we can say is that no matter how many people do not want this fight to happen, there is hardly any boxing fans that will not be watching the fight on July 14th.

Promoter Frank Warren commented on the situation and confirmed that the LBF are 100% behind the fight: "The LBF is backing the show along with the World Boxing Organisation and the World Boxing Association, whose International and Intercontinental titles will be on the line."
