Frank Buglioni versus Callum Johnson was signed, sealed, and almost delivered but Johnson has now pulled out from the weekend. According to Eddie Hearn, Johnson spent the weekend in hospital and is unable to take part in the fight.
The British light heavyweight champion will now defend his title against Craig ‘The Spider’ Richards.

It won’t be easy for the short-notice replacement.
Richards has mostly fought at super middleweight throughout his career. This will also be his first 12 round fight. ‘The Spider’ holds a record of 10 wins (3 KO’s) and no losses.
