Warring British boxers David Haye and Dereck Chisora will go head-to-head in London on July 14 in a fight sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation, reports said. Chisora's manager, Frank Warren, will make a "major announcement" in London on Tuesday, where he is expected to give details of the fight. Neither of the British heavyweight fighters -- who hit the headlines after an ugly brawl at a news conference after Chisora's WBC heavyweight defeat to Vitali Klitschko in Munich on Feb. 18 -- hold a current British Boxing Board of Control license. Chisora's license was withdrawn in March following his involvement in a number of controversial incidents before and after his title challenge in the Olympiahalle fight. Haye officially retired last October, three months after losing his WBA title to Wladimir Klitschko in Hamburg, Germany. But a grudge match between the pair looks set to go ahead after it apparently was given the green light by Luxembourg authorities. Warren told The Sun, "Before anyone starts screaming, let me point out the Luxembourg boxing association was formed in 1922 -- seven years before the British board. They have given their approval for the bout, and it will go on at Upton Park under their jurisdiction ... I never said Dereck shouldn't be punished, but the board here [in Britain] withdrew his license -- they did not ban him, so he can apply to any boxing board."
