IT was, without doubt, hesitation or consideration to objective journalism, the worst decision of the year in sport. Now, the date is set for Grays former English Heavyweight Champion, John McDermott to take on Tyson Fury for the English Heavyweight Championship.
The fight is set for Saturday May 22nd in Nottingham. As reported, John has changed coaches and is now fighting out of the Jim McDonnell stable in Loughton alongside James DeGale.
YourThurrock caught up with John at the opening of the Gateway Boxing Club in Lampits Hill, Corringham to assess how the preparation is coming along.
