Dereck Chisora has regained his British boxing license a year after it was stripped following a brawl with fellow British heavyweight David Haye at a news conference.

The British Boxing Board of Control withdrew Chisora's license in April 2012 after he tangled with Haye at a news conference in Munich after he lost to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.

Chisora, a former British and Commonwealth champion, used a Luxembourg license when he and Haye fought each other in London in July. Haye knocked him out in the fifth round.

Promoter Frank Warren says Chisora was reissued with a license Tuesday ahead of his April 20 comeback fight. His opponent has not been named.

Chisora says "I'm glad that this whole episode is finally behind me."

For sure. Cameron will knock him out.

It will be close but I think Cameron on points.

Meehan will knock him out. This is his last fight.
