Betting Shop: Chisora fractures hand and won’t fight Fury on Saturday
By Andrew Scott Wednesday, 23 July 2014 08:09
Pay per head sportsbooks found out that Chisora fractured his hand while training and would not be able to take on Fury and defend his European title this weekend. The British heavyweight crown was also available.
Price per head services and many people with a betting site were concerned when they learned that Chisora’s hand was injured during a sparring session, meaning that their clash will have to take place on a date that has not yet been decided.
In a statement from the promoters, Chisora said: “I can’t tell you how disappointed I am to have to pull out of the fight against Fury.
“But it is on the advice of my specialist that I have to do this.
And betting shops know how important it is for Chisora to take his advice.
“I’m sorry for the fans who will get to miss this great fight between me and Tyson but once my hand is healed and I’m given the all-clear to train and punch again, I’ll be working on the new date for the fight.”
Chisora, who betting shops and pay per head sportsbooks know was eager to avenge his loss to Fury three years ago on a unanimous points decision, added: “I was in fantastic shape and had a great training camp, probably the best so far in my career and was looking forward to getting revenge.”
Promoter Frank Warren said: “Everybody involved in the fight worked hard to get it on and, for this to happen on the final week, is a big disappointment to everyone.
Many people with a betting site were also disappointed, but now just want to see Chisora recover.
“There’s no way that Dereck could fight with his hand fractured and there’s no way I would let him get into the ring and fight with an injury like that.
“Obviously, you’ve got to feel for Tyson who, through no fault of his own, has been hit hard by this postponement after all the training he has put in.
