As if you couldn't get enough of boxers in the news for the wrong reasons, today British heavyweight titlist and upcoming Wladimir Klitschko challenger Dereck Chisora was found guilty of assaulting an ex-girlfriend in May. He received a suspended 12-week prison sentence, meaning he'll be able to travel to Germany to fight Klitschko in a month's time.
The AP report at ESPN linked above says that Chisora has prior violent crimes on his record. He also bit Paul Butlin in a 2009 fight in London.
This won't quite be the end of it, either. The British Boxing Board of Control is very strict about fighter behavior in and out of the ring. Recently, Ricky Hatton had to go in front of the board when he had his cocaine scandal, and was allowed to keep his promoter's license but lost his boxing license and was fined $31,000. Chisora probably won't lose his license, but is likely to face some level of fine and given a firm scolding at the least.
Chisora (14-0, 9 KO) is the massive underdog against the dominant Klitschko (55-3, 49 KO), and a win for Chisora would be an early and serious contender for Upset of the Decade, and likely rank among the great heavyweight upsets in history.
