Haye-Chisora grudge match to take place following Luxembourg board’s backing
London : Heavyweight boxer David Haye’s grudge match against fellow Brit boxer Dereck Chisora would go ahead following the backing it received from the Luxembourg Boxing Federation (LBF) despite ban threat from the European Boxing Union.
The federation organized a special general meeting on Tuesday night to decide whether to sanction the showdown on July 14.
The vote of the 12 members was eight votes in favour and four against, reports said.
Therefore, the LBF is backing the show along with the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) and the World Boxing Association (WBA), who will put their International and Intercontinental belts on the line.
The European boxing union had threatened to ban the governing body if they allowed the July 14 showdown to proceed.
