Larry Olubamiwo Withdraws From Derek Chisora Fight

By James Slater: In bad and frustrating news for former British heavyweight champ Derek Chisora, Larry Olubamiwo, his scheduled opponent for this coming Saturday on promoter Frank Warren's big Wembley show, has had to withdraw due to illness.

"The War Machine," as Olubamiwo is known, released the news on his face book page yesterday.

" I am really ill so won't be able to fight on Saturday;" he wrote. " I will be back as soon as I am better."

Both men were looking forward to returning to winning ways on Saturday _ Chisora after losing on points to Tyson Fury, Big Larry after being taken out in a round by John McDermott. Now we will have to wait and see if this intriguing, possible slugfest, will be rescheduled at a later date.

It is as yet unknown if "Del Boy" will still appear against a late replacement on Saturday's exciting card.
