Gary Buckland Injured, Withdraws From Truscott Fight

GARY BUCKLAND has suffered a muscle injury and been forced to withdraw from him his British super-featherweight title defence against Paul Truscott in Newport on Saturday November 26.

In light of the injury, Hatton Promotions have cancelled the entire card but plan to return to Newport when Buckland is fit enough to fight again, hopefully in early 2012.

Hatton Promotions head Ricky Hatton: “It is a real shame, but we had no option but to scrap the card once we realised Gary's would be side-lined.

“I am sorry for all those fans that were looking forward to his first defence, but we will be back in the New Year.

“There will be plenty of Hatton Promotions cards in South Wales in 2012 as we look to build a fan base for Gary and other upcoming fighter in the area.

“I just look forward to seeing Gary back in the ring defending his domestic title before moving on to European and world honours.

“We are still planning to stage a show on November 26 in another British town and hopefully that will be confirmed in the coming days.”

Fans that had already purchased tickets for the Newport card can get a full refund from the point of purchase.

Middlesbrough’s Truscott will now box on Hatton Promotions card at Oldham Leisure Centre on Saturday (Nov 12) when he boxes Dezzie Higginson over eight rounds
