Frank Warren threatens legal action if British Boxing Board remove his licence over Haye-Chisora fight

Frank Warren has threatened the British Boxing Board of Control with legal action unless they rescind a pledge to remove the licences of anyone involved with the 'rebel' David Haye-Dereck Chisora fight.

Warren, in a letter to the board obtained by The Sunday Telegraph, accuses the sport's governing body of acting in self-interest - "fearful" that they will lose their "monopoly in the UK".

The board has said that any of its licensees who participate in the fight "will be deemed to have terminated" both their membership of the board and their licence.

Warren in turn says there are "no substantive grounds to revoke" his licence and that the board has "not properly complied with any procedural requirements" set out under its own rules.

The British heavyweights brawled in Munich three months ago, following which Chisora had his licence withdrawn by the board after a disciplinary hearing.

However, this fight will go ahead with the two boxers licensed by the new Luxembourg Boxing Federation, which is also sanctioning the event. European Union laws mean the British Board is powerless to stop the fight.

Haye, meanwhile, claimed yesterday that Chisora had been stalking him in London and branded him "a lunatic".

He also claimed they almost came to blows in a Mayfair restaurant. Chisora has said Haye "picked up a knife", but Haye has claimed he "was eating a steak".

Haye said: "Everywhere I have gone - restaurants, bars or clubs - they always say 'Dereck Chisora was here looking for you'.

"When I went to a restaurant he must have been tipped off because he came running in. He sits down opposite me and says, 'I want to fight you'.

"I was like, 'Well, we're talking to Frank anyway'.
