The ring return of Anthony Yarde (20-2, 19 KOs) has once again been pushed back.
Promoter Frank Warren's Queensberry Promotions announced that Yarde's opponent, Emin Atra, withdrew with an injury.
Yarde vs. Atra was scheduled to take place this coming Saturday night at the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington.
Initially, the fight was going to take place back in April, as part of the undercard to Felix Cash vs. Denzel Bentley, but Yarde withdrew from the contest with a tooth abscess.
The card on Saturday will still move forward, with light heavyweight Lyndon Arthur (18-0, 12 KOs) facing Davide Faraci (15-0, 7 KOs) in the main event. Yarde was sloted in the co-feature position.
Warren had hoped that both Yarde and Arthur would come away victorious to set up a rematch by the end of the year.
Yarde has yet to return since last December's upset split decision loss to Arthur. It was the second loss of Yarde's career, with his first defeat coming at the hands of then WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev in 2019.
In the aftermath of the loss to Arthur, there was a lot of heat on Yarde for laying back for most of early rounds and basically giving them away by not being active enough.
