Chisora banned

British heavyweight Dereck Chisora was banned indefinitely by the World Boxing Council (WBC) on Tuesday for what the organisation called ‘one of the worst behaviours ever by a professional’.

Chisora, beaten on points by WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in Munich earlier this month, was involved in an ugly brawl with fellow countryman David Haye at the post-match news conference.

"The WBC is imposing a serious fine to be finally determined after a hearing to be held under the supervision of our counsel representative attorney Stephen Beverly," the organisation said in a statement. 

"The WBC declares an indefinite suspension against fighting again for a WBC title while demanding Chisora take an anger management medical treatment after which his suspension will be reconsidered."

The boxer was questioned by German police before being released over his brawl with Haye, the former world heavyweight champion.
