Tyson Fury is Possibly Off The Khan-McCloskey Undercard

By Rick Reeno

The last two days have been hectic for the Amir Khan-Paul McCloskey undercard. After what appeared to be a done feal two days ago, former WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman (49-7, 40KOs) withdrew from a scheduled fight with unbeaten Tyson Fury (14-0, 10KOs). While unconfirmed, BoxingScene.com was told that Rahman's trainer Eddie Mustafa Muhammad was not comfortable with his boxer taking such a fight on two weeks notice. 

After the information was disclosed that Rahman was out, the fight with Fury was offered to tough veteran Kali Meehan (37-4, 30KOs), who quickly accepted the opportunity. But, BoxingScene was advised that Meehan received a call on Wednesday informing him that Fury was no longer on the show. 

Khan vs. McCloskey takes place on April 16 at the MEN Arena in Manchester.

Shame either one of those two would of been a great fight for Fury.

Too good to be true, Tyson needs to step up his opponents.
