WBC suspends Dereck Chisora indefinitely

LONDON - The WBC suspended British boxer Dereck Chisora indefinitely on Tuesday following his brawl with former WBA champion David Haye after a title fight against Vitali Klitschko in Germany.

The WBC issued a statement announcing the ban and harshly criticized Chisora’s conduct before and after the Feb. 18 fight, saying it “is considered one of the worst behaviors ever by a professional boxer.’’

Chisora slapped Klitschko in the face during the weigh-in and then spat water in his brother Wladimir’s face before the fight started.

After he lost a unanimous decision, he responded to Haye’s taunts by walking through the crowd and starting a brawl with his fellow British boxer. AP
