Next month’s controversial fight between British boxers David Haye and Dereck Chisora received official sanction from the World Boxing Association on Thursday.

Ex-WBA heavyweight champion Haye will fight Chisora, who lost to Wladimir Klitschko in February, for the WBA intercontinental heavyweight belt in London on July 14.

As neither fighter holds a licence from the British Boxing Board of Control, the bout will be under the auspices of the Luxembourg Boxing Federation, leading the British body to threaten to ban all involved.

“The fight between Haye and Chisora will be endorsed by the WBA. It has been officially approved that the WBA Intercontinental title is on the line,” WBA vice-president Gilberto Mendoza Jr. said on the association website.

The WBA’s heavyweight world champion is Russia’s Alexander Povetkin, while Wladimir Klitschko holds the super champion belt.
