The all-British clash between the WBA #1 and #2 world-ranked light heavyweights Joshua Buatsi and Dan Azeez has been postponed after Azeez suffered a back injury in his final training session.
NoSmokeSport.com has learnt and Ben Shalom has confirmed that BOXXER hopes to reschedule the fight before the end of the year.
All tickets will automatically remain valid for the rescheduled main event and a full refund will be made available for anyone unable to attend.
Despite the injury to Azeez and the main event off, the card will still go ahead.
Lawal vs Chamberlain New Main Event
Mikael Lawal (17-0, 11 KOs) will defend his British cruiserweight championship against Isaac Chamberlain (14-2, 8 KOs) in the new headliner.
Lawal picked up the title with a stoppage win in a difficult fight with Scotland’s David Jamieson last November.
The pair were supposed to clash in Bournemouth but a dental injury on Lawal’s side saw the bout postponed and Chamberlain instead fought Dylan Bregeon at York Hall.
Chamberlain had a British fight of the year contender with WBO champion Chris Billam-Smith last July, establishing himself as a contender at 200 pounds.
The winner will be ordered to defend against 2020 Olympian Cheavon Clarke who has quickly become must-watch TV in the eighteen months since turning professional.
