BoxACADEMY postponed until May 3rd


Queensberry Promotion have today annoucned the postponement of their first BoxACADEMY show on April 12th which was due to take place at London’s York Hall but will now transfer to The Troxy in Limehouse on May 3rd due to both Tony Conquest and Michael Walsh being unfit to box until later in the year. The Troxy show will now be headlined by Steve O’Meara.

George Warren of Queensberry Promotions said “ We’re hugely disappointed that we’ve had to change the debut BoxAcademy event. I found out in the last 48 hours about both Tony and Michael not being fit to box, it’s a real shame especially as the Conquest v Simmons is a fight that has seemed to have captured the trades imagination. We tried to match Simmons with former ABA champion Chris Keane but due to the short notice felt it would be better to arrange this fight for a later BoxAcademy show in the summer. Tony is going to have an operation on his hand and isn’t back until September, where we hope to match him with the winner of Simmons and Keane.”

The second BoxACADEMY bill has now been announced for May 18th in Oldham and will be a co-promotion with Steve Wood featuring Ronnie Heffron.

Daily Sport says – BoxACADEMY should give the nation a chance to see what up and coming talent we have on a regular basis so we can wait to see it start.
