Kash Ali has been handed a six-month ban for biting David Price during their heavyweight fight in March.
The British boxer has also been fined £10,000 for the biting, which led to his fifth-round disqualification and the subsequent suspension of his boxing licence.
His trainer Adam Etches told Sky Sports News: “He’s got off lightly, but at the same time, he’s not a bad guy. He lost his head.
“He’s got to serve his time and he’ll be straight back in, and back to winning ways.”
