I think Chisora having anger management class's would have been a good thing but again it comes down to the BBBoC and their major **** up, they had a chance to enforce it as part of the punishment but didn't.

That the fight is happening in these circumstances is the board's fault. If they had given Chisora a definitive ban of say, a year, he would've had to comply.

I wish Lewis had retired and just shut up forever. I'm fed up of hearing this sort of thing. He claims the division is dead and there is no talent, but really it seems like he just doesn't like being away from the limelight with the attention that brings. He hates seeing the Klitschkos get credit for anything and now apparently hates seeing G$ora and Money Hayeweather (the cash cow of European boxing) in the spotlight. He needs to let go. Boxing can continue without him

Put it this way. Lennox doesn't think the fight should happen- but I do. Our opinions cancel each other out

I don't think anybody had a problem with the fact Chisora was punished, it was the form the punishment took that caused the issue.
I can't argue with that.

I think the BBB of C was trying to be politically correct with the ban, and at the time I thought it was smart:

Let Chisora show he is dealing with his issues, and deserves his licence back. For that to be it may take six months; it may never happen.

But this is boxing, and ideology is often taken apart by arguably the most purely capitalist driven sport the modern world has known. I should of seen this coming, but like the BBB of C, underestimated ******.

Lennox Lewis is a clever man, and I'm sure the irony would not be lost on him if he did make such comments..

I would not be surprised if he has been misquoted here
Bollocks.Lennox has been known to talk complete and utter balls know and again.Listen to him speaking to Larry Merchant after the Vitali fight and hes a first class window licker.Very very lucky that Larry wasnt 50 years younger.

As much as the hardcore want to see Chisora/Haye, perhaps they should look at the whole picture and make an unselfish decision and help the sport's perception by disowning the fight.

By taking the 'high ground', morally their arguments would then carry more weight, when trying to resolve other boxing problems such as alphabet organizations corruption and perceived flaws in such organizations as the British Boxing Board of Control, as far as refereeing, judging and general disconnections with the fancy are concerned.
Why look long term? This match up opens the door for anyone to fight in the UK regardless of how awful they are or what health they are in. People complain about mismatches in British boxing too.

I agree, I probably wouldn't say that to his face though TBF.
