Fury McDermott II Postponed Again

Looks like the highly anticipated rematch between Tyson Fury 10-0(8) and John McDermott has once again been postponed. They were rescheduled already to face one another at the end of this month on May 22nd in Manchester, but according to McDermott's promoter Frank Warren, the fight has been rescheduled once again for the end of June as per the BBB of C's orders. Supposedly, Fury's promoter Mick Hennessey for reasons unknown as of yet requested another extension. The British board is angry and is giving room for the fight to take place by the end of next month at the latest. The proposed new date for the rematch will be June 11th..

Fury won the British heavyweight title last September when he beat McDermott by a controversial points win. He was ordered to have a rematch because of this controversy, but due to injuries he sustained in his next fight, Fury was unable to fulfill that rematch request and was stripped of his title.

Since then unbeaten Derek Chisora has become the British champion and easily beat a faded Danny Williams in his last match. So, this rematch will be a final eliminator for the winner to take on Chisora, which will be a great match.

Tyson Fury Quotes

"You have to take the good with the bad and Mick has been good to me, so I'm not thinking about looking for another promoter. What I do need though is to fight more often. One fight in eight months is not enough. I've not even had much sparring.

"This fight [with McDermott] has been called off about five times and I don't know what's going on. I have to get my career moving."

Come back for more information on why this fight was rescheduled and the new fight date.....
