Scratch another good fight from December’s lineup. Queensberry Promotions announced today that Hamzah Sheeraz is out of his December 2nd clash with Liam Williams after suffering a perforated eardrum. The bout will now take place “early in 2024.”
The show, originally slated to take place at Copper Box Arena, now moves up a day to Friday the 1st and heads to York Hall. Gavin Gwynne (16-2-1, 4 KO) faces Emiliano Marsili (42-0-1, 16 KO) for the European lightweight title and Sam Noakes (11-0, 11 KO) fights Carlos Perez (19-7-2, 2 KO) in the featured attractions and Moses Itauma (6-0, 4 KO) makes a quick turnaround against TBA.
Sheeraz (18-0, 14 KO) fought thrice in 2022 but just once this year, knocking out Dmytro Mytrofanov on August’s Oleksandr Usyk vs Daniel Dubois show. He looked to be in for a stern and entertaining test against the always dangerous Williams (24-4-1, 19 KO); hopefully he heals up quick.
