Luke Blackledge out of July bout with injury

Newly-crowned Commonwealth super-middleweight champion, Luke Blackledge (19-2-2) was due to be back in action on July 25th at Liverpool Olympia but has been forced to pull out of the show due to injury.

The 24-year-old from Lancashire explained, “I wasn’t 100 per cent fit to fight anyway and I’ve been having Cryotherapy sessions and that’s been helping but I caught Impetigo in a sparring session and I’ve had to stop all training so there’s no way I’ll be fighting in July.”

The 168-pounder was due to enter into a six round contest on the VIP Promotions show featuring unbeaten local boxing heroes, John Quigley (13-0) and Andy Colquhoun (13-0).

With only 17 days to go before Arthur Abraham (42-4, 28 KOs) locks horns with Robert Stieglitz (47-4-1, 27 KOs) in their fourth WBO World Super Middleweight title contest, the champion and his coach Ulli Wegner, yesterday, opened the doors to their training camp at the Olympic Centre in Kienbaum, Germany.

Talking to the media in attendance, Wegner revealed his pleasure at ‘King’ Arthur’s preparations. ‘’Our training has gone better than expected,’’ said the 73 year-old coach. ‘’Arthur has even been sending cruiserweights to the canvas in sparring.

Anything else would be a disaster.’’
