The Federation Luxembourgeoise de Boxe (Luxembourg Boxing Federation) convened a special general meeting in Luxembourg on Tuesday, June 5 to discuss the European Boxing Union (EBU) vote and to decide whether they are remaining on course to back the David Haye versus Dereck Chisora fight at the Boleyn Ground in London on Saturday, July 14 and to develop the sanctioning of the show in the UK.
The vote of the 12 members was eight votes in favour and four votes against. Therefore the LBF is backing the show along with the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) and the World Boxing Association (WBA), who’s International and Intercontinental titles will be contested, and the promotion will definitely go ahead.
The heavyweight main event will be supported by an undercard Sauerland fight between Alexander Povetkin and Hasim Rahman.
