Comeback disaster for Francy Luzoho

Francy Luzoho [1(1)-1(0)] was denied the chance to end a ‘ridicuously frustrating’ period of inactivety in Spain tonight.

The Spain-based Dub was set to fight for the first time since 2018 and finally put his high profile and in some quarters controversial defeat to Martin Quinn behind him in the process.

However, the entertaining lightweight’s return was canceled last minute. With just minutes to go before he was set to step in the ring for the first time since March 2019, Luzoho got told his fight was off.

‘The Butcher Boy’s’ proposed KO Boxing promoted clash with Oscar Amador was cancelled as both prepared to make the ring walk.

The Nicaragua-born, Spain-based fighter, who has Irish previous having shared the ring with the likes of Pierce O’Leary, Dylan Moran, Stephen Ormond and Paddy Donovan, tested positive for COVID and was told late notice he was unable to fight.

It’s massively frustrating for Luzoho, who was keen to back in the ring and fight for the first time under trainer Jonathan O’Brien and new manager Ryan Rhodes.

It’s now believed the Congolese Dub will return on June 4 in Luxembourgh.
