Tyson Fury fury skips a fight with David Price in a bid to capture a world title 



Tyson Fury has vacated his British and Common wealth belts in order to unify the Heavyweight division, avoiding a dangerous fight with David Price. This was a match a lot of us looked forward to, and it seems a lot of the blame falls on Mick Hennessy, Fury’s promoter, than Fury himself.

We shouldn't be surprised. Fury is rated 7th by the WBC, holds a TV deal with Channel Five and has market value with his undefeated record. Did people really think that Hennessy and Fury would risk all this for a fight with David Price? I didn’t, and I don’t know why I see jaws dropping all over the boxing forums.

Just because the fight is not happening right now , it doesn’t mean that it won’t ever happen and when one of the two have a belt the fight will be bigger, drawing a larger crowd and earning more money for everyone involved.

People shouldn’t get angry with team Fury because in the long run it could turn out to be a good decision for his career.

Mick Hennessy reportedly offered £100k for the fight to be staged on Channel five but team Price turned this down. Most people don’t believe this story, and I’m inclined to agree with the sceptics. If Hennessy did offer this amount of cash it means two things; either Hennessy is desperate for the fight to be on Channel 5, or he has every ounce of confidence in his fighter.

Whether Hennessy is confident or not of Fury beating Price, the fight should 100% be on Channel 5. Terrestrial TV is a much better way to make a bigger name for your fighter than on Sky Sports 1, because people will watch anything that's free. I’m surprised Frank Maloney isn’t willing to have the fight on Channel 5.

Before we blame all the blame on Tyson Fury and Mick Hennessy let’s wait a couple of days. Why? Because when Hennessy informed the press that Tyson has vacated his belts, he also said Fury's future will be announced within the next few days. This has to mean Fury’s next opponent is going to be named soon. We know it can't be a Klitschko or Povetkin because they have fights lined up, but there are still some credible names out there in the top 10 rankings that are available.

If it’s is announced that Tyson Fury will fight Eddie Chambers, Robert Helenius, Alexander Dimitrenko or anyone else like this, then we can’t call it ducking. But if it is another Nevan Pajkic or Nikolai Firtha, then I'd welcome ‘why did the chicken cross the road’ jokes aimed at Fury and Hennessey.
