LONDON: Britain’s boxing body fined former world heavyweight champion David Haye 25,000 pounds ($31,995) on Wednesday for his conduct in the build-up to his defeat by underdog Tony Bellew in London last March.

“Mr. Haye admitted that his behavior amounted to misconduct and brought boxing into disrepute,” the British Boxing Board of Control said in a statement.

The buildup to the fight had been marked by intense news conferences and heated trash-talk between the two British fighters.
