Rees-Murray off

Gavin Rees’ lightweight clash with John Murray on the December 8 bill at the London Olympia is off after Murray failed a BBBofC medical. Welshman Rees will now focus his attention on a WBA World title shot, which promoter Eddie Hearn believes will be made in the early part of 2013. “Obviously it’s disappointing to lose the Rees vs. Murray fight but as always, boxers’ safety is paramount,” says Hearn. “For Gavin we will now make the WBA title fight with Richard Abril for early 2013.

The card will go in as scheduled featuring a clash between former European middleweight champions Darren Barker and Kerry Hope, plus a tasty welterweight clash between Lee Purdy and Carson Jones.
