Haye Vs Chisora: Referee and Judges announced!

The LBF (Luxembourg Boxing Federation) have confirmed the officials for the controversial heavyweight showdown between David Haye and Dereck Chisora at Upton Park on July 14th.

The three judges that have been selected are John Coyle (UK), Paul Thomas (UK), Luc Muller (Luxembourg).

The referee that has been chosen could cause a little more controversy, but not much. The LBF have selected Mickey Vann, who is now 68-years old. Vann was forced to retire as BBBofC referee as the age limit is 65. He is still allowed to judge and referee international shows that have nothing to do with the British Board but seeing as this fight is in the UK, the Board might get just a little annoyed.

Vann claims that even at his age, he will have no problem refereeing a bout that could be very eventful and at times maybe even dirty.

"I still referee and did a tough 12-rounder in Ukraine last month," told Vann.

Haye Vs Chisora is quickly approaching and tickets are selling out fast. Tickets for 'Licensed To Thrill' are available at , and .

All of the action from the show will also be shown live on BoxNation (SKY & VIRGIN 456). The channel only costs £10 a month and you will be able to view every fight and programme that the channel shows. You can subscribe at .
