McDermott vs Chisora For Fury's Vacated English Title

Tyson Fury(9(7 KO's)-0-0) has been forced to vacate his British title because he will not be able to meet the British Board's obligation to rematch John McDermott in December due to a hand injury he sustained in his decision win over Tomas Mrazek.

The British Title will now be given to the winner of John McDermott(25(16 KO's)-6(2 KO's)-0) and London's unbeaten Derek "Del Boy" Chisora. Fury is supposed to fight the winner of these 2, and the winner of that will face the winner of Danny Williams(41(31 KO's)-8(4 Ko's)-0) and Sam Sexton(13(6 KO's)-1-0). Williams and Sexton will fight on February, 13th 2010. The winner of this fight will then be the British champion as well.

No dates have been named for McDermott vs Chisora match. Stay tuned for more information.

Here's what Tyson Fury had to say about losing the title and much more:

"I'm sick about it, but The BBB of C wouldn't give me any more time. My hand is still only about 80-percent. Two specialists have recommended I have an operation and it looks like I'll have to [have one]. The Board said they will match McDermott and Chisora for the vacant title and I'll get the winner in a final eliminator for the British. I won't lose my position and it gives me hand more time."
