Fans of heavyweight sensation Tyson Fury will have to wait a little longer for his seventh professional outing. The 6 foot 9 inch Fury has suffered a back injury in training meaning that his next bout has now been postponed until July 18 in Norwich.

Fury had been set for action on this Saturday’s “Rule Britannia” card at the Robin Park Arena in Wigan. The Hennessy Sports event is live on ITV4 from 8pm and is headlined by John Murray’s British Lightweight title defence against Scott Lawton.

However with a persistent back injury hampering his preparations Fury has been forced to withdraw from the card. “I’m very disappointed but the doctor has said that the only thing for the injury is to rest for a week so then I should be able to get back to training for the July 18th fight,” said Fury.

“I’ve been very busy since I turned pro and I want to keep to a busy schedule so I don’t want to risk the back injury getting any worse. I’m getting closer to a British title shot with every fight now so hopefully on July 18th I’ll take another step up in class. I know Mick Hennessy is working on something for that show and I’ll be ready for whoever shows up in the opposite corner.”
