Nurse vs. Singleton is Now Pushed Back To September
By Terence Dooley
Huddersfield's Tyrone Nurse, 25-1 (5), will have to wait until September for his crack at the English light-welterweight title after Shayne "The Pin" Singleton, 14-0 (3), was forced to withdraw from his first title defence, which had been scheduled for June 1st, due to a hand injury. Singleton won the title courtesy of a split decision over Curtis Woodhouse in March.
Nurse picked up the vacant Central Area title by scoring a second-round TKO of Joe Eldith in February, the 23-year-old had hoped to carry this momentum over to his meeting with Colne's Singleton, also 23, but will now have to wait until Autumn for his long-awaited crack at the English belt.
