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.

Skelton used to fight in K1 up untill 2002. He has no amateur experience at all and i've seen him fight a few times and he is just a bit of a bruiser. Although Skelton beat Francis much easier than Audley that doesn't really account to much. If you take a look at Harrison he can turn on the gas in the blink of a eyelid when he wants to. I'm sure he is holding back in his fights and just doing enough to win them. He could have taken out Francis anytime he wanted to.
