Dennis Ceylan has been forced to postpone his EU Featherweight title fight with Jesus Sanchez on November 24 at the Ceres Arena in Aarhus due to illness.
The 29 year-old has been suffering with influenza and unable to train adequately for his upcoming revenge mission against the current Spanish Champion, who defeated Ceylan via knockout at the Struer Energi Park in March.
“I’m disappointed not to be able to box on November 24, but this is a very important fight for me and I need to make sure I’m 100% ready when I enter the ring, and unfortunately, that’s not going to be possible,” said Ceylan.
“I’ll now take some time to rest before getting back in the gym and training harder than ever. I want revenge on Sanchez for beating me in March, and I look forward to a new date being scheduled once I’ve recovered.”
Promoter Nisse Sauerland has expressed his regret at postponing the show but says fans will not have to wait long before seeing Ceylan and Sanchez in the ring.
“It’s with regret that we must postpone the show,” said Sauerland. “But with just a month to go, Dennis is unwell and unable to train, and for a fight of this magnitude, it would to be too big of a risk to allow him to continue.
“Dennis will not be out of action for long. In a week or two, he should be ready to resume training. I will now speak with Sanchez’s team and the EBU, and will look to reschedule the fight as soon as possible."
