Connor Coyle tells Eddie Hearn ‘I’m not going anywhere’

Connor Coyle has told Eddie Hearn he’s not going anywhere and remains ready to fight Felix Cash.

‘The Kid’ was due to fight the former British champion in London last Saturday night in a chief support clash on the massive ‘Born Rivals’ card.

However, with the main event falling through the bill was pulled and the world-ranked Derry middle was left without a fight.

The 31-year-old remained confident his particular fight was postponed rather than cancelled and was hopeful a new date would be confirmed very soon.

It was rumoured the fight may find a new home on the undercard of Katie Taylor’s October 29 topped DAZN card, and while Matchroom boss Hearn has since said Cash is likely to populate that bill, Coyle’s name hasn’t been mentioned as the opponent.

That in turn has prompted the Derry middle to make his availability known. The NABF champ has told Hearn he still wants the Cash fight and is ready to go when whenever called upon.

Speaking directly after the Saturday card was cancelled Coyle said: “I AM SICKENED! The whole card has been cancelled/postponed! Two months away from my kids & family to be dropped last minute like this over someone else’s mistake! I’m sorry for people who booked hotels and fight to come over. It was all out of my control!

“More news to follow in the coming days about my fight. Coyle Vs Cash will still happen, it has to! I will

“I sincerely apologise to all my Sponsors who have backed me & this fight and has been very supportive through my whole preparations. For the fight fans, we will get the show happening again, I hope to announce soon.”
