British boxing investigates Chisora's behavior


LONDON (AP) -- The British Boxing Board of Control could take action against heavyweight Dereck Chisora after it opened an investigation into his behavior before, during and after his points defeat to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.

Chisora slapped Klitschko at the weigh-in and spat water in the face of his opponent's brother, Wladimir, before Saturday's bout in Munich. He then brawled with former WBA champion David Haye at the post-fight news conference.

The BBBC says it is investigating Chisora on a misconduct charge "and a further statement will be issued once the stewards have decided on what action will be taken."

The BBBC cannot take action against Haye, who goaded his fellow Briton, because he is officially retired and is not licensed by the body.
