ARTHUR ABRAHAM has withdrawn from his November 12 rematch with Martin Murray because of an injury.
The pair were set to provide a sequel to their 2015 meeting, in which Abraham retained his WBO world super-middleweight title on a close decision in Germany.
Since then both men have lost, Abraham to Gilberto Ramirez and Murray to George Groves, but were set to meet in Monte Carlo next month.
Just to let yous know that my rematch with Abraham is off not due to him being injured. Just in the process of sorting another opponent now

Murray later clarified that he mistyped the tweet and that Abraham’s injury is the reason for the fight being called off.
The St Helens man will still box on the Monte Carlo show, though against whom is not yet yet clear. It is believed that the Abraham-Murray rematch will potentially be rescheduled for a later date.
