British heavyweight hope Tyson Fury has had to withdraw from this Saturday's scheduled contest.  Fury was hoping to have his seventh pro outing on the undercard of British lightweight champion John Murray's clash against Scott Lawton at the Robin Park Arena in Wigan.

A back injury suffered in training means that Fury, 21, now has to wait until the 18th of July for his next fight, mooted for Norwich.  Fury will take a week off before resuming training for the rearranged date.

Tyson turned professional last December and has reeled off six wins, all of them coming via stoppage, he has yet to enter the fifth round, and had hoped to get some rounds under his belt on Saturday night.

Nadeem Siddique’s ten-round showdown against Tom Glover is now the chief support; Siddique is coming off his first professional loss, a thrilling stoppage at the hands of Martin Gethin last July, and will be looking to get his career back on track against the in-form Glover.

All the action will be shown live on ITV4 from 8pm Saturday night.
