Donegal light middleweight Michael McLaughlin has been forced to sit out the Murphy’s Boxing Monster Brawl in Melrose on Friday night.
The southpaw has withdrawn from his all-lefty clash with Shakha Moore due to a troublesome arm injury
“The arm has prevented me from sparring I needed for the fight so I’ve been forced to pull out,” McLaughlin told Donegalnow.com. “I’m hoping to get back on track with a fight before Christmas to move me closer to challenging for titles in 2015.”
31 year old McLaughlin [11(5)-1(0)-1] has recently spoke of his desire to fight for the Irish title and a return to these shores may be in the pipeline for 2016.
