Amateur Career

Chisora was the 2005 ABA Super heavyweight champion.


  • In 2009, Chisora was suspended by the BBBofC for four months and fined 2,500 pounds for biting his opponent Paul Butlin's ear. The foul was not seen by the official, however, and Chisora went on to win on points.
  • In 2012, Chisora was suspended and fined by the WBC for slapping Vitali Klitschko at the weigh-in for their bout and by the BBBofC for a brawl with David Haye which occurred during the post-fight interview for his bout with Vitali.

Legal Troubles

On Nov 10th, 2010 it was announced that Chisora had been given a suspended sentence after being found guilty of submitting his former girlfriend to a "humiliating" assault. He was given a 12-week prison sentence suspended for two years at City of Westminster magistrates' court relating to the attack in May. The court was told that Chisora, who has previous convictions for assault, attacked after finding text messages from another man on his then girlfriend's phone. He was accused of throwing his then girlfriend on the bed and spanking her repeatedly. Chisora was ordered to pay 1,500 pounds in compensation and 500 pound court costs. He was also told he must complete 150 hours of community work. [1]
