Dereck Chisora's promoter says the heavyweight fighter has had his British boxing license withdrawn indefinitely following his brawl with former WBA champion David Haye at a news conference in Germany. Frank Warren, Chisora's promoter, says ''we'll consider whether to appeal the decision.'' Chisora faced the British Boxing Board of Control on Wednesday in Cardiff to explain why he fought with Haye after losing his WBC heavyweight title challenge to Vitali Klitschko on Feb. 18. Chisora also slapped Klitschko at the weigh-in and spat water at his opponent's brother, Wladimir, just before the fight. The WBC suspended Chisora indefinitely last month, taking him off its rankings and imposing a ''serious fine.''
