SHOW GOES ON WITH SAUNDERS HEADLINING IN EUROPEAN
TITLE CHALLENGE
NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED FOR CHISORA V FURY

Dereck Chisora has been forced to withdraw from his showdown against Tyson Fury this Saturday (26th July) at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester after suffering a fractured left hand in his last sparring session leading up to the fight.

Chisora's fight against Fury, which was a European heavyweight title defence with the Vacant British title on the line plus an eliminator for the WBO World title, will now be rescheduled and a new date will be announced shortly.

The title packed show will still go ahead with Billy Joe Saunders now in the main event challenging for the Vacant European Middleweight title against Emanuele Blandamura, plus Liam Smith defending his British Light-Middleweight title against Jason Welborn; Terry Flanagan and Martin Gethin contesting for the Vacant British Lightweight Championship, and Jack Catterall and Nathan Brough fighting it out for the Vacant Central Area Light-Welterweight Championship and a quality packed undercard featuring some of the best domestic talent.

Chisora said, "I can't tell you how disappointed I am to have to pull out of the fight against Fury, but it is on the advice of my specialist that I have to do this. I'm sorry for the fans who will get to miss this great fight between me and Tyson this Saturday, but once my hand is healed and I'm given the all-clear to train and punch again, I'll be working on the new date for the fight. I was in fantastic shape and had a great training camp, probably the best so far in my career, and was looking forward to getting revenge on Fury, but that will have wait. I'm sorry to have to pull out on Fury, as I know that he had been training hard and it was going to be a great fight between two top athletes and I hope we can get it on again soon."

Promoter Frank Warren said, "Everybody involved in the fight worked hard to get it on and for this to happen on the final week is a big disappointment to everyone. There's no way that Dereck could fight with his hand fractured and there's no way I would let him get into the ring and fight with an injury like that. Obviously you've got to feel for Tyson who, through no fault of his own, has been hit hard by this postponement after all the training he has put in. It's a big heavyweight fight with a lot at stake for both fighters and we're working hard to get a new date confirmed. It's an old cliche, but the show goes on, and despite Chisora v Fury off the show, a cracking undercard packed with title fights will still go ahead. Billy Joe Saunders has a fantastic opportunity to step up and claim the European Middleweight title in a tough fight against Blandamura, Liam Smith is set for an explosive British title defence against Jason Welborn, exciting lightweight Terry Flanagan goes for his first title against Martin Gethin with the prized Lonsdale belt on the line, while light-welterweights Jack Catterall and Nathan Brough clash for the Vacant Central Area title, Ronnie Heffron and Liam Williams meet in an Eliminator for the British Light-Middleweight title, plus the undercard features Chris Eubank Jnr, Tom Stalker and many more."

Once we have had the opportunity to liase with all ticket outlets and agents, further information regarding tickets will be released tomorrow (July 22).
Next weekend heavyweight juggernauts Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury meet for all the marbles at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester.

And if further evidence were required that we've a real prize fight on our hands, the principals shook on a £100 grand side bet at a heated press conference at a west London cinema last Monday.

CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING
YORK HALL, LONDON - WEDNESDAY 16TH JULY 2014
After a top grade five and a half year pro apprenticeship, boxing fans should finally discover whether Manchester lightweight Terry Flanagan has the tools and fortitude to cut it in major title class next weekend.

The 25 year old southpaw has already bagged Prizefighter and English titles whilst running up a perfect 24 fight slate (eight stoppages).
At the age of 21 and with just 34 pro rounds on his perfect 8-0 (4) slate, Harrow Weald super-featherweight Mitchell Smith is already honing in on the major titles.

If the former ABA champion's talent is incontestable, his application has been rather less so. But following a wake-up call in his first 10 rounder against Scott Moises last September, 'the Baby Faced Assassin' began to get his act together.

IN DEPTH WITH LOUIS ADOLPHE

Posted on 16 July 2014 in Interviews
2012 English ABA champion Louis Adolphe finally makes his pro debut at the York Hall this Wednesday in a four rounder.

The 22 year old Wimbledon welter graduated from the highly regarded Earlsfield ABC academy with several national honours and England vests and now hopes his slick skills can take him to the big titles and big money as a pro.
Britain's premier chain of Sports Bars, Rileys are to take the role of title sponsor for the mammoth British Heavyweight dust up between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury on Saturday 26th July at the Phones 4 U Arena Manchester.

The huge heavyweight fight, between British boxing's two most controversial stars, which will serve as a final eliminator for the chance to face Wladimir Klitschko for the world Heavyweight Championship. The all on the line clash, between the two rivals will be shown live and exclusive on the Channel of Champions BoxNation (Sky 437 (HD on 490) and Virgin 546)

IN DEPTH WITH KIRK GARVEY

Posted on 14 July 2014 in Interviews
Six foot four inch light-heavyweight Kirk Garvey believes it won't be too long before he's towering over Britain's 175lb division.

The 22 year old from Clapham, south London bagged 11 national amateur titles – including the 2012 senior English ABA crown – and once scalped Olympic medallist Anthony Ogogo.
Winchmore Hill super-middle Frank Buglioni believes that his unscripted stoppage loss to teak tough Belarusian Sergey Khomitsky at the Copper Box last April has actually accelerated his passage to the major titles he covets.

The sixth round stoppage loss highlighted a few flaws that needed correcting yet might not have been identified against less taxing, less stubborn opposition.
Last Tuesday marked the 125th anniversary of the almost mythical heavyweight prize-fight between John L. Sullivan and Jake Kilrain.

It was the last bareknuckle tussle – held under London Prize Rules – before gloves were formally embraced.
