Hennessy Sports in association with GoldenPalace.com today regrettably announce Wayne Elcock has had to withdraw from his British Middleweight Title defence against Darren McDermott due to a severe chest infection..
Birmingham's former world title challenger and current British Champion Wayne Elcock was due to take on Dudley's undefeated Darren McDermott in a much anticipated Midlands derby at the Aston Events Centre on Friday, 25th April as top of the bill of a Hennessy Sports show.
But the fight has had to be postponed due to Wayne Elcock's illness and a new date and venue for the show will be announced as soon as possible by Hennessy Sports.
Wayne Elcock said:
“I am totally gutted to be out of this fight as until now training was going to plan and I felt absolutely fantastic. After the disappointment of my last fight against Arthur Abraham I wanted to put on a dazzling display for my fans and I was more than confident that I would retain my British Middleweight Title, now I have to wait for my chance in the coming months”.
* All ticket holders are advised to retain their tickets until further notice.
