06/11/2012 Another drop out for Fury, who will step up?
Tyson Fury finds himself again without an opponent in the space of a few weeks, his initial show down with Ruslan Chagaev was brought to an abrupt end when Chagaev looked elsewhere notibly Mike Perez of Cuba.
It then left a huge opportunity for someone to come in and take on the Irishman, step up Denis Boytsov. The 31-0 man was due to take on Fury in a WBC eliminator and would offer a huge stepping stone towards a world title shot. Unfortunately Boytsov has now pulled from the fight as well leaving unbeaten Fury with no where to turn.
With a 19-0 record and showing some great promise from his last few encounters, Fury looks all the makings of a legitimate challenge to the top Heavyweights, but now he will most probably have to take on a journeyman that will offer nothing more than another win on his record.
Ultimately the challenge has been sent to fellow British Heavyweight David Price but it will be a while before that happens as both men have contracts and commitments elsewhere for now.
