The big-punching 19 year old has been forced off the card due to this week undergoing two surgeries on a troublesome, debilitating, nose problem which has now been thankfully nipped in the bud.
Currently still hospitalised, Crocker had previously intended on fighting regardless, but has now elected to pull out having seen his final two weeks of preparations decimated. The hugely Breen Team banger described how “it’s definitely better to be smart rather than brave.”
“I’m 19, have all the time in the world, I could beat myself about it or just take it as it is and come back stronger and that’s what I’ll do!”
The card now consists of Jamie Conlan, Paddy Barnes, Marco McCullough, Con Sheehan, Sean Turner, Gary Sweeney, Declan Geraghty, James Tennyson, Steven Ward, Stephen Ormond, and the clash between Sean Creagh and Tyrone McKenna.
