LONDON (13 December 2016) Lenny Daws has been forced to postpone his European Super-Lightweight title challenge due to a back injury.

The Morden puncher was scheduled to take on Sweden’s Anthony Yigit this Saturday at the Westcroft Leisure Centre, but was ruled out by a medical specialist last night.

Daws’s chiropractor has recommended that he needs 2 weeks of total rest and treatment before he can resume training again.

Without the headline attraction for the event, promoter Mick Hennessy has postponed the show with a date to be confirmed in early February.

Daws said, “I’m absolutely gutted and can’t say how sorry I am to my fans’ and also to Team Yigit. I would never pull out of fight and unfortunately my doctor has had the hard task of making that decision for me. The last thing I’d want to do is get in the ring anything less than one hundred percent fit as this means so much to me. I look forward to recommencing training in the New Year for the rescheduled date.”

Tickets purchased will be valid for the new rescheduled date when it is confirmed.
