Rising star Tyson won't vent fury on Hennessy

Boxing: Heavyweight Tyson Fury has said that he won't ditch promoter Mick Hennessy after his rematch with John McDermott was postponed again.

Fury and McDermott had been due to face off in an English title and British Championship eliminator this Saturday.

Fury earned a controversial points decision over McDermott when the pair fought in Brentwood last September. Most observers had McDermott winning the fight, but referee and sole judge for the night Terry O'Connor stunned the audience when he raised Fury's arm at the end of the final round.

Fury has only fought once in the last eight months, giving rise to rumours of a possible split with Hennessy, but the young fighter said: "You have to take the good with the bad and Mick has been good to me, so I'm not thinking about looking for another promoter.

"What I do need though is to fight more often. One fight in eight months is not enough. I've not even had much sparring.

"This fight has been called off about five times and I don't know what's going on. I have to get my career moving."

Hennessy's team gave no reason for the latest postponement, but a provisional new date of June 11 has been agreed.
