Due to multiple injuries resulting to a number of fight cancellations, Queensberry Promotions rescheduled their Morningside Leicester Arena show from February 23 to March 23.
Leicester’s British super-featherweight and WBO Intercontinental champion Sam Bowen, 26 from Ibstock, will be headlining the event against an opponent who will be announced at a later date.
Bowen, trained by Carl Greaves, was due to face Dundee's Ronnie 'The Shark' Clark (21-4-2), but he was forced to withdraw through injury.
Super-lightweight Sam Maxwell’s WBO European title challenge against Spaniard Kelvin Dotel, heavyweight prospect Nathan Gorman and local Leicester fighter Lyon Woodstock will also be fighting on the show on March 23, as originally planned.
The tantalising local derby between CJ Challenger and Kyle Haywood for the Midlands Area super-welterweight title is still on the cards, much to the delight of fight fans.
Tickets already purchased for the event will still be valid for March 23rd. Tickets are available from £40 and are on sale NOW via Eventbrite.
Formerly scheduled to fight in Leicester, Anthony Yarde’s contest against Baltimore boxer Travis Reeves will now take place on Friday 8th March at the Royal Albert Hall to replace Nicola Adams’ world title challenge against Mexico’s WBO World Flyweight champion, Arely Mucino.
Adams has unfortunately picked up an injury during her preparations for the contest, ruling the double Olympic champion out from fighting on March 8. The world title bout will be rescheduled to take place later in the year.
Championship boxing at the iconic Royal Albert Hall is back on Friday 8th March and will see Heavyweight prospect Daniel Dubois face Romania’s former world title challenger Razvan Cojanu.
It will be England vs Wales in a double British title bust-up when Cardiff’s British middleweight champion Liam Williams defends against Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender and Peckham’s British welterweight champion Johnny Garton defends his Lonsdale belt against Welshman, Chris Jenkins.
Tickets are priced from £40 and are available to buy via www.RoyalAlbertHall.com
