Queensberry Promotions’ upcoming 1-2 punch lost a bit of steam today, as an undisclosed injury forced Akeem Ennis-Brown out of his March 26th main event against Sam Maxwell.

Both shows this weekend are still scheduled to go ahead and updates will follow.
Ennis-Brown (14-0, 1 KO) vs. Maxwell (14-0, 11 KO) was as Scott put it, “[g]ood domestic-level fighters in a good domestic matchup.” Both are among BoxRec’s top 10 British super lightweights and have done quite well for themselves on the local circuit; Ennis-Brown notably won the British and Commonwealth titles last September with a decision over Philip Bowes. It’s a shame to see it fall apart.
Luckily for Frank Warren and co., there are still plenty of fights to go around. Sam Gilley meets Danny Ball in a clash of undefeated young welterweights, WBO #1 super middleweight contender Zach Parker makes his promotional debut against the durable Vaughn Alexander, and 20-year-old bantamweight Dennis McCann returns to action.
Unfortunately for us Yanks, we still don’t get to see any of those.
