Unfortunately, today's John McDermott vs. Tyson Fury press conference has been cancelled.
This is because Fury has refused to attend the head-to-head, despite the efforts of promoter Frank Maloney.
Maloney who promotes the fight at Brentwood Centre this Friday, September 4 said: "I am very disappointed with the attitude of Fury and his promoter Mick Hennessy. I have lodged a complaint with the British Boxing Board of Control.
"I paid a record purse for an English heavyweight title fight to stage the fight and expect co-operation with media activities.
"It is the only conference Tyson has been asked to attend to promote the figh,t so there has not been excessive press demands from me.
"I have offered to fly Tyson and his trainer down from Manchester on Monday morning, put a driver at his disposal and even offered use of a gym if he wanted to train before flying him back home.
"We're in an era where promoters need to keep boxing in the mainstream media, but it is impossible with this attitude.
"If Hennessy Sports had won the purse bids I can assure you that McDermott would have attended press conferences."
