Tyson Fury's Last Minute Withdrawal Stuns Everyone
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Tyson Fury has withdrawn from his heavyweight contest tonight against Alexander Ustinov after his uncle and first trainer, Hughie, has been taken seriously ill into hospital.

The multi-title show will still go ahead with Billy Joe Saunders challenging for the Vacant European Middleweight title against Emanuele Blandamura, Liam Smith defends his British Light-Middleweight title against Jason Welborn; Terry Flanagan challenges Martin Gethin for the Vacant British Lightweight Championship, and Jack Catterall face Nathan Brough for the Vacant Central Area Light-Welterweight Championship

Fury had already coped with a last minute change when original opponent Dereck Chisora pulled out with a fractured hand earlier in the week and promoter Frank Warren secured world ranked Belarusian Ustinov to step in.

Tyson’s uncle and trainer Peter took the decision to pull him out of the fight rather than risk his health by sending him into the ring with his mind not focused.

Warren said, “I’m very, very, disappointed for the fans.  After Dereck Chisora pulled out because of his hand injury, we worked very hard to secure a world ranked opponent in Ustinov.  It’s sad that his uncle Hughie is in a serious condition and our thoughts are with him.   The show will still go ahead and as before it’s a great card with Billy Joe Saunders, Liam Smith, Terry Flanagan and Jack Catterall and Nathan Brough all in title action.  We will be announcing the rescheduled date for Chisora v Fury next week,”

[QUOTE=takingaim]He could've had a serious heart attack. If it's something as serious as that then it's not a bullsh*t reason at all. He wouldn't be mentally focused - he wouldn't even want to be in the ring.[/QUOTE] Then he wouldn't be a PRO ... You get the job done no matter what

[QUOTE=LacedUp]How do you know if I may ask? His father, John and his Uncle Peter have been in and out of Prison for most of Tyson's life, so how do you know whether he has a close relationship with his uncle? You call us knumbskulls, but the mere fact that you try and call someone out for no...

Fury can file his uncle's medical report right next to Haye's for his messed up toe. Which is right next to Haye's mythical medical report for his broken hand in the Valuev fight.
