A back injury has forced Jermall Charlo to postpone his next world title defence against Maciej Sulecki on June 18.
The WBC middleweight champion was scheduled to return to fighting in front of his home fans at the Toyota Centre, Houston. Charlo has already been out of the ring for a year having last fought at the same venue but against Juan Montiel. It would be a successful third defence of his belt for the unbeaten 32-year-old who won a 12-round unanimous decision.
The card will be rescheduled to a new date that will be announced pending an assessment of when Charlo can return to training.
Also scheduled for the card was undefeated top super bantamweight contender Ra’eese Aleem taking on Mike Plania in the 10-round co-main event, and Derrick James-trained unbeaten lightweight contender Frank Martin was going to face Ricardo Núñez in the 10-round telecast
