Liam Smith pulls out of Sadam Ali fight


Recommended Posts

Sadam Ali (26-1, 14 Kos) was meant to face Liverpool's Liam Smith (26-1-1, 14 KOs) on 12th May, 2018.

The card at Turning Stone Resort & Casino, Verona, New York, USA looks like it will go ahead. Golden Boy Promotions are looking for a replacement. Rey Vargas vs Azat Hovhannisyan is co-headlining.



ESPN’s Dan Rafael wrote: “[Golden Boy president Eric] Gomez said Smith’s promoter, Frank Warren, told him that Smith would be unable to fight on the scheduled date due to “some sort of allergic reaction to something.”

“Gomez said is working to find a replacement opponent.”
