Meshech Speare Ruled Out of February 28 Return in Liverpool

Meshech Speare has been ruled out of his next fight, less than a week after being given a date.

The 23-year-old hasn’t fought since last May but has been in the gym and raring to go.

Speare is 5-0 with three quick finishes and, after leaving the Everton Red Triangle gym, is now working under the tutelage of George Vaughan and Derry Mathews.


He was scheduled to appear on a show co-promoted by Everton Red Triangle’s Paul Stevenson, along with Pat Barrett of Black Flash Promotions, on February 28.

The show will take place at Grand Central Hall in Liverpool and is being billed ‘Undefeated’. It is set to feature some of Liverpool’s biggest talents, including lightweight Nick Ball, who moved into double figures last year after a stellar four-fight campaign in which only one of the fights went the distance.

But Speare’s first appearance in nine months, which was set to be the first of five fights that he will have this year, has already been chalked off, with the undefeated fighter teasing that there is news on his return coming sooner rather than later.

The bill in the city centre of Liverpool will also feature a second outing for Karl Tierney Jr. as well as James Heneghan and Mikey Hedges, all three of whom are managed by Warren Boxing Management, alongside Junior Thompson.

Thompson made a sensational start to his paid venture back in November when he won via a first-round retirement and will be hoping to build on that, under coach Dee Taggart, when he is back with Connor Butler, Andrew Cain and Carly Skelly.

Former Haringey Box Cup winner Jonathan Walsh, ex-ABA senior elite 56kg amateur champion Bradley Strand, middleweight Harry Woods and welterweight Jack McKinlay complete the line-up, while there will be a debut outing for former Knowsley Vale amateur Luke Blakemore and a return to the ring for Commonwealth super-welterweight champion James Metcalf as he returns from hand surgery.
