(BBC Sports) - Audley Harrison has suspended plans to fight British heavyweight champion Matt Skelton after talks broke down.
Following his Bristol fight with Julius Francis, the WBF title-holder returns to London to fight an unnamed opponent at Alexandra Palace on 19 June.
"I'm not going to put my career on hold for anyone including Matt Skelton," Harrison told his official website.
The 32-year-old Briton has had a series of well-documented run-ins with Skelton's boxing promoter Frank Warren.
Skelton will next defend his British title against an unnamed fighter at Bethnal Green, London, on 5 June.
