Audley, Thompson, Tarver Ready For Fury in Manchester

By Edward Chaykovsky

There is no shortage of fighters lining up to face Tyson Fury (22-0, 16KOs) on Saturday night in Manchester. On Monday morning it was announced that Dereck Chisora fractured his hand and was forced to withdraw from the fight. Talks are ongoing to reschedule that fight for the fall.

On Tuesday it was revealed that Fury still intends to fight on the card at the Phones 4 U Arena. Antonio Tarver (30-6, 21KOs), Tony Thompson (39-5, 26KOs) and event Olympic gold medal winner Audley Harrison (31-7, 23KOs) are open to the idea of stepping in on late notice to fight Fury.

Audley would fit the bill and the easiest of the three to make, but he's been inactive for over and year and is coming off a first round TKO defeat to Deontay Wilder, and those factors could make it a tough fight for the British Board to approve.

There's no excuse for the Audley fight not happening. Fury is terrified of the A-Force.

[QUOTE=LacedUp;14786892]I think Warren is trying to build his channel. Don't think he gives two shyts about Chisora any longer. This is a major blow for boxnation, they need something to keep it going, and Tyson Fury is that guy. [B]Now,…
