SCHEDULE CHANGES TO FORTHCOMING FRANK WARREN AND QUEENSBERRY PROMOTIONS SHOWS

 

With the late cancellation of the BoxAcademy show at the Troxy that was due to take place tomorrow in London and injury problems on other shows, Frank Warren Promotions and Queensberry Promotions have made some changes to their forthcoming schedule of events.

 

The Frank Warren show at the Liverpool Olympia on Friday 11th May, headlined by Stephen Smith’s WBO Intercontinental Super-Featherweight title defence against Francisco Urena, has been cancelled after Urena pulled out injured.

 

Liverpool stars Joe Selkirk, Rocky Fielding and Paul Butler, who were featuring on the undercard, will now go on the debut Queensberry Promotions BoxAcademy show which will take place on Friday 18th May at the Oldham Leisure Centre.

 

Ronnie Heffron had to withdraw from his clash with Liam Smith on the Oldham card due to a hand injury, so unbeaten light-middleweight star Selkirk will now joint-headline alongside super-middleweight ace Rocky Fielding, in separate ten-round contests.

 

Unbeaten Liverpool light-middleweight talent Smith will go on the Newport Sports Centre card on Friday 25th May which is headlined by Lee Selby’s Commonwealth Featherweight title defence against Patrick Okine.

 

In addition, Frank Warren has confirmed a show for Friday 1st June at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, headlined by new Commonwealth Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders and Stephen Smith will be on the undercard.

 

Saunders stopped Tony Hill inside an explosive 30 seconds at the Royal Albert Hall last Saturday night to win the title and will be making the first defence of the belt.
