Fury's anger at Chisora withdrawal
22 Jul 2014 09:09
Tyson Fury faces a frustrating wait to discover when he can fight Dereck Chisora in a final eliminator for the WBO world title after his opponent was forced out of their Manchester showdown.
-
After Chisora fractured his hand during a sparring session ahead of Saturday night's scheduled bout at the Phones 4u Arena, the fight's promoters announced they were looking for a new date.
-
Chisora's European heavyweight title and the vacant British belt were both at stake, but most galling for the fighters is the fact they have to wait longer to face off for a shot at the WBO crown, currently held by Wladimir Klitschko.
-
Revenge was also on the agenda for Londoner Chisora, who lost to Fury on a unanimous points decision three years ago, while the Manchester boxer was eager for major action having twice seen David Haye pull out of fights with him last year.
-
Fury tweeted: "Told you all what would happen find me a real man to fight."
-
In a statement from promoters, Chisora said: "I can't tell you how disappointed I am to have to pull out of the fight against Fury, but it is on the advice of my specialist that I have to do this.
-
"I'm sorry for the fans who will get to miss this great fight between me and Tyson this Saturday, but once my hand is healed and I'm given the all-clear to train and punch again, I'll be working on the new date for the fight."
