A HEREFORD boxer is preparing for another Midland title shot after his opponent pulled out of their original meeting.

After the recent shock announcement by the Midland British Boxing Board of Control would not to approve the vacant Midland Middleweight title fight between Hereford‘s Liam O’Hare and Tom Brennan, the fight is back on for Saturday, June 1, at The Meca, Swindon.

The original date for the fight was set for March 21, on a neutral ground but Brennan pulled out with an injury and his promoters then set Saturday, April 13, in Swindon as the re-match.

However, this was rejected by the Board due to the re-arranged date being too close to O’Hare’s last fight.

Commenting on the latest developments, O’Hare said: “I was disappointing by the first postponement and ready to take on Tom Brennan for my second Midland title on 13th of this month.

“I know that many of my fans are equally gutted, but it makes me all the more determined to win and I will be training harder than ever.”

O’Hare, 27, is already the Midland Super Middleweight Champion and he added: “It may be Tom Brennan’s home show, but I am confident that with my Hereford fans there in force, we can not only raise the roof, but silence the home crowd and come away with another title for Hereford.”

Despite the delays, O’Hare, from The City of Hereford Boxing Academy, remains on course for the English and/or British title shots. Another impressive win in Swindon will further his cause. 

O’Hare’s main sponsor Furniture.co.uk is providing free transport from Hereford and Ross.
