Rumours are circulating that Andy Lee’s defence of his WBO Middleweight world title will be postponed for a second time.
The Limerick boxer was sent to face challenger Billy Lee Saunders as part of a fight night in the Manchester Arena on October 10.
The two were initially scheduled to fight in Thomond Park at the end of September, but that was rescheduled last month.
A formal announcement regarding a change to the WW3 event in Manchester will be made later today by Frank Warren.— Frank Warren (@frankwarren_tv) September 1, 2015
Promoter Frank Warren is set to make a statement in the next few hours, but reports on social media suggest that the fight is off. Saunders is rumoured to have injured himself in training.
