A spot of bovver for 'Del Boy'

GUILTY: Dereck Chisora

DERECK CHISORA is again in the headlines for the wrong reasons, this time he has been fined £665 for jumping a red light and fleeing the police.

Chisora, always to be remembered for his feud with David Haye during a bad tempered press conferences, was found guilty of jumping a red light and fleeing the police after being asked to stop. The 32 year-old Zimbabwean-born boxer was driving in Finchley last April without insurance on his 5.5 litre Mercedes SUV and when asked to pull over by the police, he refused to and fled from them.

Chisora, known in boxing circles as 'Del Boy', was due at court yesterday (October 27) but was not present, was represented by his lawyer Barry Warburton, who said: "The police officer's attention was drawn because they were sitting in a traffic queue and he wound his window down and asked: 'Do you have a driving licence?' My client said it was an international driver's licence and the officer said there was no such thing.'

"It was in fact a full Zimbabwean driving licence and all he has to do is send it to DVLA and they will send back a full UK driving licence.

The lawyer added: "He's pleaded guilty to the red traffic light, he says it was marginal, but accepts he should have stopped."

Warburton also claims that the vehicle was fully insured for named drivers over the age of thirty years old, however Chisora was not a named driver on the policy.

The European heavyweight champion is currently training for his fight with fellow British boxer Tyson Fury, the bout takes place on November 29 at London's ExCeL Arena.
