Fury vs. Boytsov May Head To a Mid-February Date

By Edward Chaykovsky

The battle of heavyweight unbeatens may get a brand new date in 2013. Fans were upset when Denis Boytsov (31-0, 25KOs) withdrew from a planned fight with Tyson Fury (19-0, 14KOs). According to Peter Fury, uncle and trainer, of Tyson, the fight with Boytsov is possibly going to get rescheduled to a date in mid-February. Boytsov's promoter said his boxer needed more time to prepare. Fury will still return on at the Odyssey in Belfast on December 1.

“We are looking to reschedule the fight for mid-February. Boytsov said he needs more time to prepare for Tyson. We are now on with another opponent for Dec 1st. That’s all I know for now," Peter Fury stated.

I'm hoping it happens in February, and the winner becomes the WBO mandatory.

I hope Price can set up a similar standard of opponent for early next year. This competition will be great for British boxing.

This is a good fight boystov has some fast hands and pop. Much better fighter than any of the opponents for other top prospects
