Frankie Gavin OUT of October 17th Matchroom headline fight

Frankie Gavin has unfortunately had to withdraw from his British and Commonwealth title clash next week with Sam Eggington.

The withdrawal is due to a foot injury suffered by Gavin two and a half weeks ago when his foot was run over by car.

The former Irish champion was due to face his cross-city rival live on Sky Sports as the headline bout on the BattleOfBrum card at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham

The popular 30 year old southpaw broke the news on Twitter:

Gavin, Eggington, and promoter Eddie Hearn will look to refix the fight at a later date.

In the meantime, Eggington will face a new, to-be-announced, opponent on the October 17th card.
