Injured Derek Chisora withdraws from fight with Tyson Fury
Submitted by David Anderson
Dereck Chisora is set to pull out of Saturday's heavyweight grudge match with Tyson Fury because he has broken a bone in his hand. The European champ hurt his right hand during sparring last week in his north London gym.
Chisora's hand felt sore all weekend and he had a MRI scan today, which revealed he has broken a bone in his hand. Chisora, 30, has no option but to withdraw from the clash with Fury at Manchester's Phones 4u Arena. He is said to be gutted by the news and was desperate for the chance to face Fury again and avenge his 2011 points loss.
Fury is also devastated and tonight tweeted Chisora, telling him to pull out. 'The Gypsy King' raged on Twitter: "Don't even think of pulling out of this fight bitch. Don't do a @mrdavidhaye & be a s**thouse c**t. You'll be a laughing stock."
Fury's anger is understandable and this will be the third time in 10 months he has seen an opponent pull out injured after David Haye did it twice to him last year.
