The Finchley heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora has been given his British boxing licence back ahead of his next fight in April, according to his promoter Frank Warren.

Chisora was stripped of his licence last year by the British Boxing Board of Control after he brawled with his rival David Haye at a press conference. However, he then fought Haye in the ring at Upton Park after being granted a licence by the Luxembourg authorities.

London boxer Dereck Chisora will fight at Wembley Arena in March if he gets his British boxing licence back. The Finchley heavyweight was stripped of his licence by the British Boxing Board of Control after brawling with David Haye at a press conference in February last year.

He has now reapplied for a licence from the board and if he gets it, he will take on an unnamed opponent at the 'Rule Britannia' show on March 16th.
