Fury finds replacement opponent
Tyson Fury is set to face Alexander Ustinov in Manchester on Saturday after his original opponent Dereck Chisora pulled out of their bout with a broken hand.
Fury and Chisora were due to fight for the European title and vacant British title, with the winner likely to have faced IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.
But following Chisora's withdrawal on Monday after he fractured his hand in training, Fury will now take on Belarusian Ustinov - who has won 29 of his 30 career fights and has 21 knockouts.
It was the third time in 18 months that Fury had seen a fight cancelled after two bouts with David Haye were abandoned. On Tuesday, Fury insisted he would still fight despite Chisora pulling out.
