Iain Weaver To Make Pro Debut on Froch vs. Mack Bill
Ferndown boxer Iain Weaver says he is unlikely to make his professional debut on 20 October and is now set to fight on Carl Froch's undercard. Froch defends his IBF super middleweight title against Yusaf Mack in Nottingham on the 17th of November.
Injury ruled Weaver out of the September 8th bill while illness looks to have scuppered his chances of fighting on Kell Brook's undercard in October. Former Great Britain amateur star Weaver had been due to make his professional debut on the 'London Calling' bill earlier this month before he aggravated a metacarpal bone in his left hand during sparring. Weaver only returned to training on Monday - a week later than expected, after he picked up a bug and was laid low by illness.
"I haven't had much luck in any circumstance," Weaver told BBC Sport. “Hopefully on November 17 you'll see me making my debut. For my first fight that would be a dream come true to fight on such a big night."
