LUDLOW boxer Craig Morris has had his IBO Continental welterweight title bout with Staffordshire’s Andy Keates put back to Saturday, March 24.

Morris had been due to defend the title he won against Ryan Martin at the end of this month.

He was part of the undercard for Frankie Gavin clash with Namibia’s Bethuel Ushona for the IBO welterweight crown at Birmingham’s Genting Arena – an event promoted by BCB Promotions and sponsored by BWI Events.

But an ankle injury means Gavin has had to put everything back by a month.

For Morris it will be the first defence of his title on a night that will see a number of other leading Midlands boxers in action.

Tickets for the night are available from Duncan Morris on 07890 844418.
