Default Fury-McDermott II - update!

What's happening with this?

The board have said Hennessy will be promoting it on the 22nd of May but there's nothing about TV, no press releases or anything like that .

If this fight is going ahead then Fat Mick should make sure Primetime pick up the Marquez-Vazquez IV card which is also on the 22nd and package it together with the Fury fight for about 6.

EDIT:
Boxrec news have this;
Quote:
Promoter Frank Maloney is to stage the eagerly anticipated rematch between heavyweights Tyson Fury and John McDermott before the end of June after the British Boxing Board of Control rejected Mick Hennessy’s latest request to postpone the contest.

The rematch, which will double as a final eliminator for the British heavyweight title and also for the vacant English crown, was supposed to be taking place at a venue to be confirmed in Manchester to be promoted by Hennessy Sports on May 22. However, with Hennessy requesting yet another extension to postpone the rematch, the Board’s patience has finally been stretched.

A statement released today by Robert Smith, General Secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control, said:

“The Stewards of the Board refused an application by Promoter Mick Hennessy for a further postponement of this final eliminator contest and therefore the second highest bid supplied by Promoter Frank Maloney has now been accepted. Mr. Maloney has fourteen days to supply a date and venue for the contest, to take place by the end of June.”

Maloney promoted the first contest between Fury and McDermott in Brentwood last September which saw Fury awarded a highly controversial 98-92 points verdict from referee Terry O’Connor.

Don't you worry, Ish. You should be sound in the knowledge that papa Mick's got this one figured out.

It's not on boxrec anymore but this is from the board's notices:

The above contest to be promoted by Promoter Mick Hennessy will take place on Saturday, 22nd May 2010 at a venue as yet to be advised.

There is no way that this fight is going ahead on a Hennessey promoted show not ickets have been sold no venue confirmed and no undercard. He must be trying to put this on a show with Hearn or something but May 22 its just not happening

This is becoming a joke I feel so sorry for John, he comfortably beat Fury and now has been sitting on the sidelines waiting to get a rematch to avenge a horrible robbery. He exposed Fury for the average HW it is and I will be supporting John 100% in the rematch.
