Boxing - Singleton and Nurse rescheduled for September 20

The rescheduled English light-welterweight fight between Shayne 'The Pain' Singleton and Tyrone Nurse will now take place on September 20th at Manchester's Bowlers Centre.


The matchup was originally planned at the beginning of June, only for Singleton, who controversially took the title on points against Driffield's Curtis Woodhouse in March, to suffer a hand injury in training.

The card will also feature manchester light heavy Hosea 'The Hammer' Burton who rose to the occasion in his last appearance at the Bowlers by sensationally stopping Jahmaine Smyle, putting him down twice before the fight was stopped halfway through the opening round.

Joining Burton on the  undercard will be Cumbrian middleweight Liam Conroy and Macclesfield super bantam Liam Hanrahan,  both looking to impress their supporters.

Hyde's Danny Benson has his first outing following a successful amateur career that saw him pick up Schoolboy and Junior ABA titles, leading to interest from a number of promoters back in 2011.

Promter David Coldwell said: “Benson has all the tools to fight for titles in the future but he’s still young and he’s been out the ring for a while so we’ll be monitoring his progress slowly to begin with.

“If it was up to him, he’d jump in with anyone at any time because that’s the type of fighter he is and he’s been like that since he was an amateur. “The only thing he wouldn’t fight is a squirrel because he informs me that he’s got a very serious phobia of them which I find very funny.

“As long as there’s nothing small and furry in the opposite corner, I’ll have huge confidence in Daniel doing well for himself."

Coldwell is developing a reputation for putting on quality cards at the Bowlers. He stated:

“Fight nights in Manchester are great and I’m really looking forward to another one.”
