It was confirmed on June 6th that David Haye and Dereck Chisora's heavyweight showdown on Saturday 14th July will be for the WBO International and WBA Intercontinental titles.
The pair meet in one of the most eagerly awaited fights in recent years at West Ham United's Boleyn Ground in East London, live on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456/Virgin Ch. 546).
The British Boxing Board of Control are both affiliated with WBO and WBA organisations.
Paco Valcarcel, president of the WBO, said, "We have to go ahead and approve the fight. The Luxembourg Boxing Federation is a member of the WBO and the problem is between the LBF and the British Boxing Board of Control, not the LBF and the WBO."
Also confirmed for the "Licensed To Thrill" card, being staged by BoxNation in association with Team Sauerland and Hayemaker Boxing Ltd, is Alexander Povetkin's WBA World Heavyweight title defence against former WBC/IBF Champion Hasim Rahman on the show which will be sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.
