Christina McMahon World Title fight Postponed

There was some disappointing news tonight for Irish boxing tonight when it emerged that Christina McMahon’s upcoming World Title bout with Alicia Ashley has been postponed.

The Monaghan woman, who holds the WBC Interim bantamweight belt, was due to jump up in weight to face the Jamaican for the WBC super bantamweight title in New York on September 15th.

Speaking on social media, a disappointed McMahon – who was due to fly out tomorrow – confirmed that the bout has been postponed due to “circumstances in New York.” The 41 year old hopes to have a new date confirmed in the coming few days.
