Boxer Michael Sprott has withdrawn from the Prizefighter Series in London on October 2, following the death of his sister Ginette last week after she was hit by a train.

Former British heavyweight champion Sprott, 34, was due to compete in the eight-man tournament along with former opponents Danny Williams and Audley Harrison.
