Due to an injury sustained by IBF super bantamweight champion Steve Molitor, his scheduled world title defense against Jason Booth has been postponed and re-scheduled for September 10th. The show on July 23rd at Rainton Meadow Sunderland will still go ahead with the same undercard which include a super bantamweight commonwealth title plus an English title. The new top of the bill will be the first defense of British bantamweight champion Stuey Hall against former champion Martin Power.
Hall is in a confident mood ahead of his first defense:
“It’s great to be given the opportunity once again to fight in front of my home fans and I promise them fireworks before they go off on their summer holidays.
Martin Power was beaten in the first meeting but is chomping at the bit for the rematch:
“I’m sorry to hear the news that Jason Booth’s fight has fallen through but it is a great opportunity for myself to win a Lonsdale belt outright and it will be a different Martin Powers than the one who me to Stuey Hall in an overweight contest last September. And I have no problem travelling to his backyard.
Tickets will be on sale from Monday at revised prices of £30 and £70 ringside.
