Bedford brawler Matt Skelton is rumoured to be pulling out from his forthcoming under card clash with the much maligned Audley Harrison due to a hand injury. Although no substance as yet, the suggestion would certainly devalue the December the 9th bill.
It will be terrible shame for both fighters if this proves to be the case, such is Harrison’s desperation to restore his own credibility and Skelton deserves further exposure for his all-action, if un-cultured, style.
First mooted a few weeks ago, the story persists. British boxing fans will hope it proves little more than a malicious rumour as the Scott Harrison v Nicky Cook clash has suffered enough during the build up; alongside Harrison’s legal and personal problems the fan fight between Tony Oakey and Peter Oboh has already been lost to an Oboh injury.
