Boxer Dereck Chisora will no longer face an assault charge over an alleged fracas at a nightclub, a court has been told.
The 6ft 1.5in boxer, who has previously held heavyweight European, Commonwealth and British titles, stood outside the dock during the minute-long hearing as a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm was dropped.
Prosecutor Henry Fitch told London’s Westminster Magistrates Court: “There is one charge of ABH. The Crown withdraws the charge.”
Chisora, 33, of Hampstead, north west London, did not speak.
No applications for costs were made and nothing else was said in court.
The alleged incident happened at Tramp nightclub in west London in April.
The boxer quietly left court with his lawyer.
Chisora was scheduled to fight Robert Helenius on May 27 but that has been postponed owing to what his promoter Nisse Sauerland described as “a number of contributing factors”.
