It's a strange coincidence that Vazquez gets ill shortly after rumours are strongly denied that the fight isn't even signed. I also find it a little strange how Cleverly also gets too ill to fight on the card, George Groves leaves for undisclosed reasons and Chisora still doesn't have a license.
Terrible luck, practically unbelievable.
