Tyson Fury has withdrawn from Saturday night’s heavyweight fight with Belarusian Alexander Ustinov.

The Manchester fighter pulled out of the bout after his uncle and first trainer Hughie fell seriously ill and was taken to hospital.

Promoter Frank Warren, who had already seen Fury’s initial opponent Dereck Chisora withdraw due to injury, said: “I’m very, very, disappointed.”

Warren added that Fury would now fight Chisora at a later date.
