Chisora was stripped of his boxing licence by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBOC) after he slapped Vitali Klitschko before their February fight and brawled with Haye in a press conference that followed the bout, which Warren's fighter lost.

Chisora appealed against the BBBOC's decision but that hearing has been put back to July and the fight has instead been licenced by the Luxembourg boxing association.
