Darren Till’s showdown with Marvin Vettori is off after the Liverpool fighter suffered a serious collarbone injury.

Till was scheduled to headline the UFC Fight Night card against ‘The Italian Dream’ on April 10 in Las Vegas.

The bout may have decided the next challenger for Israel Adesanya’s middleweight title but an injury suffered in training has derailed those plans with the 28-year-old left ‘destroyed’ by the setback.

‘I’ve been sat here for a good few hours debating how to say this & put into words what I’m feeling and just going to say it straight… I’VE BROKEN MY COLLARBONE! I’m out my fight next week against Marvin,’ Till wrote on Instagram.

‘Every person who is around me or who has been around me knows I train on a daily basis with f***ed up knees, lower back, shoulders, hands and the list goes on. Yesterday while drilling I fell and straight away I knew I’d broken something.’

Till added: ‘To say I’m f*****g destroyed by it is an understatement. I’ve literally put my heart, soul, mind, physical body, cash, nutrition, sleep, recovery and then some into making sure I went out there next week and took his head off.

‘And I was 100% sure I was going to… and with ease!!! I’m sure he was thinking the same but ahh well… I am sorry @marvinvettori I hope you get a new opponent and we can do this sometime soon in the future, I respect you highly as a competitor.’

Kevin Holland meanwhile has offered to step in and fight Vettori on 10 days’ notice.
