Docherty-Kelly set for “The Comeback” undercard on Aug. 15 in Paisley

Glasgow’s former Commonwealth Champion Craig Docherty is set to challenge Dundalk, Ireland’s Michael Kelly for the World Boxing Union (WBU) Super Welterweight World title, on the Thomas Melville’s Coloseum Promotions THE COMEBACK event at the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley on Saturday 15th August.

Boxing News & Notes for 6/26: Harrison, Green return, fight announcements, and Ward-Smith aftermath

Ward ponders weight following victory over Smith. Andre Ward is unsure of which weight class he will compete following Saturday’s ninth-round TKO win over Paul Smith.

Still resting, will speak to my team soon,” Ward stated via his official Twitter account.

There are a lot of points of law that the Sheriff should have… the case should have been thrown out. For some reason he never gave an explanation why, so I will be appearing at the High Court this year.
