The professional boxing card originally set for December 14 at the Times Union Center in Albany, New York has been postponed to February 2, 2013, it was announced today by Star Boxing and the Times Union Center. “We had a terrific card planned but the main event featuring undefeated world ranked heavyweight Joe “The Future” Hanks against undefeated Fred Allen will not happen. Unfortunately Fred Allen pulled out of the fight. This was an excellent matchup featuring two, young undefeated heavyweights from the United States, but the promoter of the event – Star Boxing has secured an even better heavyweight challenger, which will give our fans something more exciting on February 2,” said Bob Belber, General Manager of the Times Union Center.
“We deeply regret having to reschedule this event, but we want to be sure to give fans an opponent worthy of facing Hanks for the title. Therefore we are moving the card to February 2 and we look forward to returning to the Times Union Center and presenting a terrific card featuring the Joe Hanks title fight for the great fans in the Albany area in February,” said Joe DeGuardia – President of Star Boxing.
Fans may use the December 14 tickets for the rescheduled date on February 2. For any fans that prefer a refund, refunds will be made at the point of purchase by no later than December 14 . Full details of the February 2 event will be announced shortly.
