JULY 4 Jonny Stapleton
Luckless Dean Byrne has had to endure another career set back, as his July 9 ‘break-through’ clash with fellow undefeated star Nasser Al Harbi has been cancelled.
Byrne(14-0) was meant to fight his fellow undefeated pro on the under card of Kevin Mitchell and John Murray’s show down. However, that bout has been moved to July 16 after the Londoner came down with a viral infection and the entire card has been subsquently cancelled.
The much touted former Crumlin amateur has had to endured more knocks outside of the ring than in it since turning pro back 2006 and it seems his career has been dealt another body blow after the fall through of his Frank Warren debut.
The former Wild Card fighter, who was tipped by the greatest trainer in the world Freddie Roach to become world champion, promised to use this weekends clash to prove to Warren and the British boxing public he is worthy of the hype.
However after today events the talented light welterweight will have to wait a little longer to begin the journey from prospect to contender. In some positive news for the Dubliner a Frank Warren spokesperson confirmed to www.Irish-boxing.com that Byrne was still in the British promoters plans and will fight on a Warren card in the near future.
