British champion Matt Skelton will not face Audley Harrison in his next fight.
Olympic gold medallist Harrison had begun negotiations with Skelton's promoter Frank Warren regarding a fight on 19 June.
But it has been announced Skelton will defend his Commonwealth belt at Bethnal Green on 5 June against an opponent yet to be named.
Harrison is still confident of appearing on 19 June in a fight to be televised by the BBC.
