Update on Boytsov-Fury cancellation

The proposed heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KOs) and Denis Boytsov (31-0, 25 KOs) is off. Boytsov’s promoter Universum Box-Promotion has issued a statement telling Tean Fury they regret the cancellation of the fight which was to take place December 1 in Northern Ireland. “It’s really a shame because it would have been a great fight. Two undefeated heavyweight hopes in a direct duel. Unfortunately, Denis does not see himself in the form to have such a fight now. It’s possible that there could be a fight by the end of the year,” said Universum chief Waldemar Kluch.

Hennessy Sports’ Adam Harris confirmed all the terms had been verbally agreed to by Universum Box-Promotion and Team Boytsov weeks ago and that Channel 5 in the UK and WeathTV in the US were already booked. “Tyson genuinely wants to fight the best opponents possible,” said Harris.
