Middleweight Ryan Davis has told WBN that a failed MRI scan lead to his fight with Vanes Martirosyan being called off just 24 hours before they were scheduled to meet and the Illinois fighter is now seeking a second opinion.
The 34 year-old’s 13-year boxing career in now in doubt after promoters Top Rank pulled the plug on the high-profile clash and Davis hopes to clarify the situation after seeking more medical advice.
“With the MRI not going well, the doctor did not want me to fight,” David told World Boxing News.
“I am getting another opinion and at this moment, I am not sure when my next fight will be.
“I have to get this taken care of first and have nothing in negotiation yet regards to rescheduling with Martirosyan.
“I trained hard for that fight and I believe he is scared to fight me so hopefully we can get the fight on again at some point as I want to be ranked in the top 10 by one of the major sanctioning bodies in the future.”
‘Dangerous’ Davis has won 24 of his 36 contest so far and took five-time world champion Zab Judah the full twelve rounds in 2007.
