KARL BRABAZON has revealed the injury that has kept him out of an exciting domestic dust-up with Paddy Gallagher.

The duo were down to fight on Saturday night at the National Stadium on Gary Hyde’s show.

But the Dublin-Belfast welterweight showdown hit the skids when Brabazon cried off with an injury last month.

He explained: “I was really gutted. Inflamed intestines. The doc wouldn’t let me box.”

Brabazon added that he is still out of action due to a course of antibiotics, which is causing cramps when he trains, but admitted his duel with Gallagher would have been ‘a good fight for the show’
