David Haye to fight Dereck Chisora this summer in grudge match following bust-up

According to Sky Sports News, David Haye is going to come out of his early retirement this summer and fight Dereck Chisora. This sounds like a match-up that everyone would find entertaining even if it didn't end up as as great demonstration of boxing.

Sky say their sources have learned a fight is to be scheduled this summer, as long as they can get the details sorted. The major detail being that neither man holds a boxing licence.

Haye retired before he could have his licence removed and Chisora has had his licence revoked by the British Boxing Board of control indefinitely. An option could be to hold the fight overseas.

We reported in February:

Derek Chisora and David Haye face the possibility of being banned for life from boxing after their scrap at the weekend. The boxers, who fought at the press conference, have to face up to the possibility of serious sanction from the British Boxing Board of Control.

In an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, the head of the organisation, Robert Smith, said a life ban was possible and "The board have many powers. They can fine, they can suspend and they can withdraw a licence."

Chisora was questioned by German police who also wanted to interview David Haye but he had seemingly made a swift and low key exit back to England.

The fight which got both men in trouble is below...
