The fight has not yet taken place and the dust is still swirling about the dark sky’s that are lurking above boxing and its future evolution. When the dust finally does settle we hope that it sets into the fabric of the sport deep and some sanity and direction can be found.
The Board feel Chisora brought the game into disrepute while representing British boxing. But by failing to ban the Londoner, they left the opportunity open for promoter Frank Warren to stage the fight under The Luxembourg Boxing Federation, an unprecedented move and one maybe the Board had considered could happen, but sure it wouldn’t. Well it has and the Board, Frank Warren and The Luxembourg outfit are held in a stand off with claims and counter claims now winging their way back and forth over a fight that IS being recognised by WBO- and WBA-sanctioned bodies.
