The WBO middleweight world title fight between champion Billy Joe Saunders and challenger Martin Murray has been called off for a second time.
The news has further angered fans who were looking forward to the bout on June 23rd which had already been attempted to be rescheduled once.
An injury to the hand of Saunders caused the first delay and a hamstring injury has caused the second date to be shelved.
A clearly frustrated Martin Murray took to Instagram to give his feelings on what he thinks happened:
THE FIGHT IS OFF!! Billy Joe Saunders has shit out again! Gutted is an understatement but nothing i can do. Just want to apologise to everyone who's bought tickets and booked hotels and thank everyone for their continued support. Hopefully another training camp doesn't go to waste and my management team can get me a fight sorted in the next couple of weeks
Saunders has now reacted officially to the news on his own social media platforms, saying:
Apologise for any inconvenience due to injury I had to withdraw from the 23 rd you hv your ups in boxing but last 3 months been downs sorry to Martin and the fans be Bk soon
