Klitschkos blast Haye v Chisora

World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and his manager Bernd Boente have condemned the proposed fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora.

The Brits both suffered points losses at the hands of the Klitschko brothers - Haye meekly capitulated against Wladimir before blaming an injury to his little toe whilst in contrast, Chisora put in a spirited effort against Vitali.
Chisora had his licence withdrawn by the British Boxing Board of Control as a result of his various misdemeanours during his title tilt weekend whilst Haye's licence to box under the BBBoC has expired.
The match between Haye and Chisora, set to take place on July 14th in London, will be sanctioned by that august and reputable body the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.
Boente told BBC Radio Five Live: "They both lost to the Klitschkos. They are on the second level. We could [not] care less."
Wladimir said: "It is a freak show under freak rules. It is a spit in the face of the British Boxing Board of Control.  To get a licence for this man [Chisora] is disgraceful for the sport. How can you have such an event featuring a man who has shown his behaviour to the world, especially considering what he did at the press conference, where he threatened Haye? It's something that isn't good for the fans and the sport."


Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Scott Quigg

Bury's Scott Quigg retained his WBA world super bantamweight title at the Phones 4 U Arena with a second round stoppage of South African Tshifhiwa Munyai, and now looks towards unification fights with Leo Santa Cruz, Kiko Martinez and, hopefully at some point, Carl Frampton.
