24 January 2013

Former UK Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Dereck Chisora has set up his training camp in Famagusta.

Dereck and his five man team will be training hard at the Ripped Gym in Famagusta. The objective is to get him super fit for his title match in the UK in March.

The match is contingent on Mr Chisora getting his British Boxing licence back which he lost after his brawl with David Haye.

Having only started his professional boxing career in 2007, Mr Chisora had 14 matches in the first 3 years and did not lose any of them.

He has had 19 matches so far and won in 15 of them.

However, on 14 March 2012, the British Boxing Board of Control withdrew Dereck Chisora’s boxing licence due to his behaviour prior to and after his contest against Vitali Klitschko. The World Boxing Council has issued an indefinite suspension against Chisora fighting again for a WBC title, while demanding he take anger management medical treatment after which his suspension will be reconsidered.
