News in today is all about the bout between Dillian Whyte vs Dereck Chisora.
All people involved in the incident at the press conference were at a British Boxing Board of Control today for a judgement on what is going on with this fight. Chisora has been given a 2 year suspended sentence. What does this mean? If he does anything bad, like this again he will have his license taken off him.
Another repercussion. The British title is now OFF the table. Part of the terms that the fight still go ahead is that the British title will not be fought for. I think this is because the BBBC do not want to British Title to be fought for by two people involved in such a big incident. The fight will still go ahead and will still be just as big but it is without the British title. I don’t think this will make to much of a difference as both fighters still hate each other, nothing has changed there. Chisora has also been fined £25,000 by the BBBC and a further £5000 for the costs involved.
This fight will still be a show-stopping bout and the hype that has built up should amount into a massive fight. I think that after what happened at the press conference the fight may become even more tense and because more hatred will have built up between the pair.
