SK Promotions release statement on cancelled Citywest ‘Collision Course’ card

SK Promotions have released a statement expressing their disappointment and dissatisfaction over the late cancellation of the ‘Collision Course’ show.

The Dublin outfit were due to run their second card tonight at the Citywest in Saggart, however yesterday evening it emerged that the venue had made the decision to cancel the card.

Gary Cully was due to headline the show which was also to feature Luke Keeler, Stephen Carroll, Davey Oliver Joyce, Liam Gaynor, Sean Creagh, and the debut of Eoin McGrath.

SK Promotions released a statement late last night apologising for the extremely late cancellation and criticising the Citywest for what they view as an “unjustified” move in pulling the card.

Read the statement in full below:

SK Promotions are extremely disappointed to confirm that tomorrow night’s Collision Course show in the Citywest Hotel has been cancelled.

This decision has been taken unilaterally by the acting manager of the Citywest Hotel, despite contracts being signed and the show being authorised by both the Boxing Union of Ireland and the police.

SK Promotions fulfilled all of its obligations towards the event and will naturally be seeking compensation from the Citywest Hotel for such a late and unjustified breach of contract.

SK Promotions would like to offer our sincere apologies to all of the local fighters who have trained for months to fight in front of their own fans. We would also like to apologise to those fans and full refunds will be provided immediately.
