ESPN are reporting that the fight is now officially off

"Unfortunately Billy Joe Saunders suffered a cut in training and his fight against Andy Lee will be postponed until late November and we'll be making an announcement about it later," they quote promoter Frank Warren as saying.

"The show will still be going ahead and it's a great show with two world title fights and we are working on another world title fight to go on the bill."


Promoter Frank Warren is due to make an official announcement later today.

The original fight was due to take place in Limerick’s Thomond Park on September 19 but was postponed as Lee was reported to be suffering from a virus.

However, there was speculation that the fight was pulled due to poor ticket sales.

It was rescheduled for Manchester on October 10 but it now appears that it will be postponed again.
