Hutchinson off MGM show in Spain – Buncrana Banger given new date

John Hutchinson has been forced to postpone his return to the ring – however the Buncrana Banger will not have to wait long to end his 20 month exile spent training in Thailand.

The former Irish title challenger [5(1)-2(0)-2] was due to fight on the MGM ‘Pros and Rookies’ show in Marbella this Saturday night, however the Donegal middleweight’s opponent could not get clearance in time for the fight.

Rather than attempt to rush in a last minute replacement for Hutchinson, the 29 year old will now fight next weekend in the Holte Suite at Villa Park.

There will still be Irish interest on the card in the sunny south of Spain this weekend, with Declan Geraghty, Sean Turner, and Tyrone McKenna all featuring.
