LONDON — David Haye’s grudge fight with Zimbabwe-born British boxer Dereck Chisora looks set to go ahead after the Luxembourg Boxing Federation (LBF) backed the bout.
The federation convened a special general meeting on Tuesday night to decide whether to sanction the showdown on July 14.
The vote of the 12 members was eight votes in favour and four against. Therefore the LBF is backing the show along with the World Boxing Organisation and the World Boxing Association, who will put their international and intercontinental belts on the line.
The European boxing union had threatened to ban the governing body if they allowed the July 14 showdown to proceed.
