The World Boxing Council threatened Friday to expel "any person or institution" that is involved in staging the controversial fight between British heavyweights David Haye and Dereck Chisora.
The July 14 fight in London, which was licensed by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation, was scheduled after the pair's infamous brawl at the news conference that followed Chisora's loss to Vitali Klitschko in Germany in February.
Chisora, who also slapped the Ukrainian heavyweight prior to a heroic defeat in the WBC title fight, was stripped of his British license following the controversies. He appealed the decision and will have his case heard in July.
Haye surrendered his British license when he announced his retirement last October in the wake of a humbling defeat to Vladimir Klitschko.
But the fighters' moves to face off in the ring led to wide criticism of both men, along with fury at the Luxembourg federation for sanctioning the bout in the absence of British authorization.
