IB – March 22, 2012 – David Coldwell and Eddie Hearn would like to announce that ‘The Big Bang’ boxing show headlined by Tony Bellew vs. Danny McIntosh will be moved from its original date of Saturday April 14 2012 to one day prior on Friday April 13 2012, to avoid a clash with the potential all-Merseyside FA Cup semi-final.
The event will still take place at Liverpool’s Echo Arena and doors will now open at 6.30pm.
David Coldwell, promoter of Coldwell Boxing, issued this brief statement earlier this afternoon.
“Due to Liverpool going through and the possibility of an all-Merseyside FA Cup semi-final, we know this is the only option.
“It’s a fantastic fight with a strong undercard but when it comes to football, you can’t win.
“Many of Tony’s fans are Everton fans, many of the undercard boxer’s fans are Liverpool fans and they all would have been disappointed to miss the show but now they can potentially attend both events.
“Adam Smith and Sky Sports have really got behind this show and have worked with us in order to secure another date for broadcast so I’m delighted that nothing has changed in that respect.”
