BOXING

As reported by Yahoo Sports journalist Kevin Iole, the heavyweight title has fallen off one of the most exciting fights of the year. According to an insider, the American heavyweight Michael Hunter abandoned the IBF challenger duel with Croat Philip Hrgovic and is going to go to the title fight in other ways.

“Sources told Yahoo Sports that Michael Hunter is not going to fight Philip Hrgovich. He plans to move in a different direction, which should be decided in the near future,” – Kevin Iole wrote on his Twitter page.

Note that the Hunter – Hrgovich fight was planned for the summer. The head of the Matchroom Boxing promotion company Eddie Hearn even managed to win the auction, but now he, most likely, will have to look for another rival for the Croatian avenue.
