Tyson Fury withdraws from fight

The Tyson Fury circus continues. Earlier today Tyson Fury withdrew from his scheduled fight against Alexander Ustinov after his uncle and first trainer Hughie Fury, was taken to the hospital after falling seriously ill. Peter Fury decided it was better to have Tyson not fight than to risk him going into the ring not mentally focused considering all that has happened in the last week.

 

Fury has had a roller coaster ride in the last year when it comes to actually fighting. Twice he had scheduled fights against David Haye cancelled, and one of those was just one week before the fight. Last week his original opponent, Dereck Chisora, pulled out of this mega fight due to an injury in sparring just five days before the fight.
