Gary Buckland To Face Dodd, Cardle Out With Injury

Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd will now face Gary Buckland at the Liverpool Olympia on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports, after injury ruled Scotty Cardle was forced out of the clash through injury.

Popular Birkenhead Lightweight Dodd already had a place on the bill but now takes centre-stage against the Welshman with the winner set to face Cardle for the Lonsdale belt in Liverpool on November 7.

Cardle was ruled out of defending the title he won in May for the first time after sustaining a tear in his quadriceps in his final spar the fight this week.

Along with a golden chance for Dodd, hard-hitting unbeaten Light Heavyweight Hosea Burton now faces unbeaten Trinidadian Nigel Edwards in a final eliminator for the Commonwealth title on the bill, a great chance for the Manchester man to edge into pole position to land his first major title.

“It’s poor luck for Scotty who was looking forward to the first defence of his British title but what a golden opportunity for Sean,” said Hearn. “I am looking forward to making the winner against Scotty for the British title on our bumper ‘Who’s Fooling Who?’ bill at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on November 7.”

Those big fights for Dodd and Burton come on a key night of action on Merseyside as Stephen Smith faces Devis Boschiero in a final eliminator for the IBF World Super Featherweight title.

Unbeaten Super Lightweight star Bradley Saunders returns to the ring against Renald Garrido and there’s action for Liverpool’s Tom Farrell and unbeaten Manchester duo Marcus Morrison and Zelfa Barrett.
