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."
