British super-middleweight champion George Groves has been forced to withdraw from his title defence against Kenny Anderson on Friday due to a back injury.
The bout was due to take place at Wembley Arena after Anderson was named mandatory challenger by the British Boxing Board of Control and a new date for the eagerly-awaited rematch has yet to be announced.
Ricky Burns successfully defended his WBO lightweight title in a unanimous decision victory over wiry Paulus Moses in front of a packed house at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow on Saturday night.
The unanimous scorecard of 119-110 120-110 117-111 did not reflect the difficulty the champion faced as the Coatbridge man struggled to back up the handy Namibian, making for an absorbing rather than exciting battle.
Earlier this week the WBC declared that they would be banning Brit heavyweight Dereck Chisora indefinitely and scraping him from their rankings following his behaviour in Munich a fortnight ago.
British heavyweight Dereck Chisora will in fact get a WBC hearing despite already being handed an indefinite ban by the organising body for his behaviour during his world title challenge against Vitali Klitschko.
Promoter Frank Warren spoke to Sky News this morning about the Dereck Chisora-David Haye brawl at the post-fight press conference. Warren says Chisora not solely to blame for the squirmish, Haye should not have been at the press conference, and both men should settle their differences in the ring…
Dereck Chisora became only the fourth man to take WBC heavyweight king Vitali Klitschko the distance on Saturday night when he lost a unanimous points decision to the veteran champion in Munich, Germany.
Despite his pre-fight antics Chisora emerged from the bout with more credit than he started it with after putting in a courageous and aggressive performance.
Promoter Frank Warren revealed he is in the dark as to why one of his prized assets, James DeGale, wants to leave his stable despite doing ‘well financially’ and being in a ‘good position’ in terms of boxing.
DeGale announced last month that he was leaving Warren's promotional stable but the promoter was quick to deny any split and insist the Olympian honour his contract unless the British Boxing Board of Control ruled in his favour.
European super-middleweight champion James DeGale and promoter Frank Warren are at loggerheads on their future relationship after the boxer released a statement revealing he was leaving the veteran promoter.
DeGale who has been promoted by Warren since turning pro after winning a gold medal at the Beijing Games in 2008, announced in a statement through his lawyers, Blick & Co, on Friday that he would be moving on.
Burns takes on former world champion Paulus Moses at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow on March 10, live on BoxNation, but revealed that he had Essex boy Mitchell in his sights for the fight after.
