Spadafora hurt, fight off!

Unbeaten former lightweight champion Paul Spadafora (40-0-1, 16 KOs) has pulled out of his March 31 fight in Pittsburgh due to a sprained left ankle suffered while doing roadwork. Spadafora, who has reunited with former trainer Jesse Reid, was slated to face Carlos Mairena (20-11-1, 17 KOs). That bout may be shifted to another Mike Acri-promoted card on May 9 in Niagara Falls, NY.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
