Hughie Fury Officially Withdraws From Oct 29 Michael Hunter Eliminator


Hughie Fury Offers Reasoning For His Pull Out And Expects To Return In 2023

As previously reported by NoSmokeBoxing, the WBA Heavyweight elimination bout between Manchester’s Hughie Fury (26-3, 15 KOs) and American Michael Hunter (20-1-2, 14 KOs), scheduled for Saturday, October 29 at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, England, has once again been postponed due to health problems suffered by the Brit.

Eubank Jr vs Benn Press Conference, Weigh In, Media Workout

“I am a professional boxer who needs to fight in order to pay my billls and to live. But I have been out for over a year now, and to my frustration, I have been advised by doctors to take total rest at the moment because i’m suffering symptoms of long covid.

I feel weak with no strength. I’ve had all sorts of checks and they’ve diagnosed me with having long covid symptoms.

It is frustrating but there is nothing I can do if my body’s not allowing me to train. I’m going to take time out for the rest of this year and pick up again next year when i’ve rested properly.

I have had 29 bouts, I’m ready for big fights and my promoter has guaranteed me a big fight upon my return. If that’s Michael Hunter next, that’s fine. If it’s someone else, that’s fine as well. I think everyone knows I will fight anyone as I have done over the years.”

British Middleweight Champion Denzel Bentley Gets Dream Las Vegas World Title Fight

The clash between the WBA’s #2 and #4 ranked contenders was to determine a mandatory challenger for the secondary WBA heavyweight title currently held by Daniel Dubois. Dubois is likely to return in a voluntary defence on November 26 in London.

Two of the fights pencilled in for that card (Dalton Smith vs Kaisee Benjamin and the return of heavyweight Frazer Clarke) have been rescheduled for a BOXXER Manchester card in November live on Sky Sports.
