“Manny is a warrior and we would like to wish him and his family all the best in a full recovery”.

Les Sherrington also expressed his disappointment after hearing the news.

“Obviously it is disappointing that this fight now won’t happen,” said Sherrington.

“However at the end of the day it is a sport and a persons health is the most important thing. Hopefully Manny can make a speedy and full recovery and we wish him well in that process”.

As for the September 20 card, it is said will proceed as scheduled.

“We will start the search immediately for a new opponent for Les,” said Smith.

“We will explore every possible avenue before even considering postponing or cancelling.”
