LUTON boxing promoter Graham Earl has postponed this Saturday’s ‘Fists of Fury’ event, at the King’s Hall in Belfast, writes Mike Simmonds.

The event, which was to be headlined by current WBU Lightweight World Champion Willie Limond’s bout with Jay Morris, was intended to showcase many of the Belfast boxers Earl has recently signed.

On making the announcement, Earl said, “I’m really disappointed that we have had to postpone Fists of Fury, it had all the makings of being a really fantastic show.

“It’s been one of those weeks, various circumstances conspired to put the show at risk early in the week, but when we started to get fighter injuries as well we couldn’t see any other option, but to postpone the show.

“We’re disappointed for the fans, who had been showing their support and getting behind the local fighters. We’re disappointed for all the fighters that were going to take part, especially the lads that were going to be debuting.

“We’re hoping to reschedule the show for later in the year, unfortunately it can’t be for a few months as we already have shows scheduled for the coming months.”

It is expected that Earl will be announcing a revised date for Belfast in the near future. In the meantime his next show will be at York Hall on Saturday, May 7.
