Narh seeking new opponent

Michael Lozada has pulled out of his USNBC lightweight title fight with Ray Narh on the undercard of Bernard Hopkins v. Roy Jones this Saturday at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Square Ring matchmaker Eric Bottjer was notified by Lozada’s agent Monday night that a friend of Lozada had e-mailed him claiming the fighter was sick and could not travel to Las Vegas from Mexico City. “It’s a tough blow, cause we were notified literally 12 hours before we were supposed to pick Lozada and his camp up from the airport,” said Bottjer. “But Ray has trained very hard for the fight and we are committed in finding a proper replacement.”
