It isn't just a 6ft 9in, 18 stone frame that distinguishes Tyson Fury as potentially the biggest superstar in British sport.

After 21 consecutive pro wins, the trigger tongued traveller is on the cusp of challenging for the world heavyweight title and don't expect the build-up to slip beneath the radar.

Everybody, it seems, harbours an opinion on Fury's fighting talent and kamikaze mindset – and not all of them are favourable – but Tyson continues to grow bolder with each passing victory.

After a frustrating 2013 in which he aired just once and was twice left stranded at the altar by David Haye, the 25 year old foghorn has penned a three fight promotional deal with Frank Warren which should culminate in a summer blockbuster with European champion and former victim Dereck Chisora.

Dormant for 10 months, Fury seeks to shed some rust in an international 10 rounder with American banger Joey Abell at The Copper Box a week on Saturday and his disciples and detractors will be equally eager to see how he fares. Few are ambivalent when it comes to Tyson Fury.
Heavyweight destroyer Tyson Fury has promised not to let new opponent Joey Abell derail him from his summer showdown with Dereck Chisora at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday 15th February.

Fury was due to face Gonzalo Omar Basile but the Argentine has withdrawn because of a lung infection, instead he will face dynamite-fisted America Abell over ten rounds on the card headlined by Chisora's WBO/WBA International title defence against Kevin Johnson, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
Frank Warren has today entered Judgment in his libel proceedings against Alex Morrison. Damages and costs will be decided at a later date.

Proceedings were issued after Mr Morrison made false and defamatory allegations about the circumstances surrounding Ricky Burns' departure in March 2013.

Warren said, "I'm delighted that I have won this case and that costs and damages will be awarded. I'm also awaiting the expected trial date in the summer of this year to deal with my ongoing claim against Ricky Burns."

BOOTH TEST FOR FARRAG

Posted on 30 January 2014 in Press Releases
Rising Liverpool bantamweight prospect Ryan Farrag faces the biggest test of his career when he takes on former British Champion Jason Booth at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday 8th March.

Farrag has targeted a title challenge by the end of the year and needs to beat the battle-hardened Booth to prove that he is ready to step up to championship level. He'll meet the Nottingham fighter over six-rounds on the undercard of Paul Butler's WBO/WBA Intercontinental Super-Flyweight title defence, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

Frank Warren's show at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday 1st March has been rescheduled to Saturday 8th March.

The show line-up remains the same with Ellesmere Port star Paul Butler defending his WBO/WBA Super-Flyweight title against Diego Liriano headlining, and Liverpool's Commonwealth Flyweight Champion Kevin Satchell defending his title against Issac Quaye. A talent-packed undercard features Ronnie Heffron v John Thain, Terry Flanagan, Thomas Stalker, Ryan Farrag, Jazza Dickens, Matty Fagan and Stephen Lewis.

Frank Warren and BoxNation - who will be televising the show live - mutually agreed the change to the 8th March, with that date being the preferred date originally.

Tickets with the Saturday 1st March date printed will still be valid for the new date.
