Boxer Dereck Chisora has been suspended indefinitely by the WBC after his bust-up with David Haye – and told to attend anger management classes.

The WBC described Chisora’s behaviour as “one of the worst” ever by a professional boxer.

Chisora brawled with Haye after losing to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in Munich earlier this month.

World Boxing Council president Jose Sulaiman, Mexico, said: “The WBC is absolutely condemning behaviors that are not to be accepted in boxing under any circumstances and will act as soon as it can proceed to impose the fines and sanctions as we consider necessary.

“The WBC is imposing a serious fine (…) and declare an indefinite suspension against fighting again for a WBC title, while demanding Chisora to take an anger management medical treatment, after which his suspension will be reconsidered.”

He continued: “Derek Chisora is not going to tarnish the sport for those born in the humblest beds, who become sports heroes of the world to live a life of dignity and pride.

“Chisora, however, as a human being that he is, is going to be strongly invited to enter an anger management rehabilitating program that hopefully will act in his benefit.”
