NOTE: Daniel Dubois came down with flu this week and is bitterly disappointed that he will not be fit to box on Saturday night. He was deeply apologetic to his fans.
Dubois said: “In a sport like boxing, if you are less than 100 percent health-wise going into the fight, then the only sensible option is to withdraw and go again on another date.
“It is bitterly disappointing for me, all the same because I was looking forward to reaching double figures in professional fights before Christmas.
“That will just have to wait now and I can only say I am sorry to Razvan (now boxing Nathan Gorman on the card) and the people who were coming out to watch me on Saturday night.”
Promoter Frank Warren said: “This is a big blow but the show must go on. I feel for the fans but if Daniel has got the flu, there’s no way I’m letting him fight.
“It’s important we still deliver to the live and the TV audience and they can look forward to seeing many of London’s finest boxing talents on Saturday night.”
