Gibbs forced out of Parker clash, Langford tops the bill

RINGSIDE 06/03/2019

A hand injury has forced Cori Gibbs out of his Midlands Area Super Lightweight Title fight against Champion, Connor Parker, this weekend.

Gibbs was set to challenge Parker at Walsall Town Hall. The show will still take place as former British Champion, Tommy Langford, steps up to top of the bill

Reigning Midlands middleweight ruler and English title challenger Tyler Denny, from Rowley Regis, becomes Chief Support to Langford.

Wolverhampton’s Conah Walker, a protege of the legendary Ricky Hatton, lightweight prospect Connor Lee Jones, of Brierley Hill, and Black Country girl Kirstie Bavington, from Wolverhampton, complete the card

Tommy Ghent is out with a back injury and Troi Coleman has been moved to BCB’s Stoke show at Kings Hall in April.

“It’s really unfortunate that Cori is injured,” explained BCB’s Head of Boxing, Errol Johnson. “We’d still like to make the fight if Cori can get himself fit anytime soon. Connor is itching to get back in the ring and defend his title before moving on to bigger and better things.”

Tickets, priced at £35 standard or £65 VIP ringside with a buffet and waitress service, are on sale now from the Town Hall Box Office on 0845 111 2900. It’s £40 for entry on the door.
