Haye-Chisora: Luxembourg Boxing Federation sanctions fight

The fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora has been sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation, despite threat of expulsion from the European Boxing Union.

Neither boxer currently holds a British boxing licence, with Chisora suspended after his brawl with Haye in Munich.

The federation voted in favour of licensing by eight votes to four.
Frank ******, who manages Chisora, claimed "the promotion will definitely go ahead" in a statement.

Pressure has mounted on the LBF following the EBU's threat.
The British Boxing Board of Control also threatened those involved with expulsion, but have since softened their stance, saying people would be allowed to explain their case.

The fight, scheduled to take place at Upton Park on 14 July, will be for the WBO and WBA intercontinental titles.

In a statement, ****** said: "[The] LBF is backing the show along with the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) and the World Boxing Association (WBA), whose international and intercontinental titles will be contested."
Promoter Bruce Baker told BBC Sport there were other European federations willing to sanction the fight if the Luxembourg Boxing Federation pulled out.

Money talks, I bet the people who run this organization cannot believe their luck. Plus with it being Luxembourg, I do not expect the taxes on the fee Frank is paying out is that steep either.
