Daws Withdraws From Yigit Showdown With Back Injury

LONDON - Lenny Daws has been forced to postpone his European Super-Lightweight title challenge due to a back injury.

The Morden puncher was scheduled to take on Sweden’s Anthony Yigit this Saturday at the Westcroft Leisure Centre, but was ruled out by a medical specialist last night.

Daws’s chiropractor has recommended that he needs 2 weeks of total rest and treatment before he can resume training again.

Without the headline attraction for the event, promoter Mick Hennessy has postponed the show with a date to be confirmed in early February.

Daws said, “I’m absolutely gutted and can’t say how sorry I am to my fans’ and also to Team Yigit. I would never pull out of fight and unfortunately my doctor has had the hard task of making that decision for me.  The last thing I'd want to do is get in the ring anything less than one hundred percent fit as this means so much to me. I look forward to recommencing training in the New Year for the rescheduled date.”

Tickets purchased will be valid for the new rescheduled date when it is confirmed.

The opponent of former WBC world cruiserweight champion Giacobbe Fragomeni has been chosen: 36 years old Hungarian Tamas Polster will fight Fragomeni on the six rounds distance in the main event of The Night of Kick and Punch 6 promoted by Angelo Valente next January 14, 2017 at Teatro della Luna in Assago, close to Milan.

Polster, whose nickname is “Psycho”, has a record of 21 wins (12 by knock out), 9 losses and 1 draw. He fought in many European countries, including Italy. He has experience, a good record, and the punch to win half of his fights inside the distance, but he also lost 8 out of 9 times before the final bell: 7 by ko or tko and 1 by disqualification. 

He is the right opponent to test Fragomeni’s skills after more than one year away from the ring. Fragomeni spent several months on the set of the tv show “L’Isola dei Famosi”, which is the Italian edition of “Celebrity Survivor”. Fragomeni won the show and that increased greatly his popularity in Italy. He could hang up the gloves, but at 47 years old he still wants to fight. Between 2001 and 2015, Giacobbe Fragomeni built a record of 33 wins (13 by knock out), 5 losses and 2 draws. He was WBC world champion from October 24, 2008 to November 21, 2009.
