Welterweight champ Larry Ekundayo pulls out of match due to injury


London was just getting ready for another right royal rumble in the West African jungle when the sad news has emerged that Larry ‘The Natural’ Ekundayo, the ABU Welterweight champion who was to defend his belt this weekend has sustained an injury, thereby cancelling and rescheduling the match for later on in the year.

The management team for Larry Ekundayo, one of the top Nigerian boxers out there right now issued this press statement yesterday evening:

Unfortunately Larrys fight has had to be postponed as he has sustained a serious hand injury whilst training. As you can imagine Larry is gutted but we couldn’t risk Larry defending his title with only one hand.

Unless you intend to still attend the show we will of course be happy to issue you a full refund of your ticket purchase, or alternatively, as Larry will be back in action within the next few months, you can roll your purchase onto the next fight and we will post you tickets for the next show when they become available. If you have purchased your tickets through the event bright link please send an email detailing your preference to: missmelemmanuel@icloud.com.

If you decide to opt for the refund we will have to have the actual tickets back before we can release the funds. Please return them to the address below at your earliest convenience. We will of course cover your postage cost (include any receipt for postage cost in envelope).

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would like to thank you for your support.


We wish him a speedy recovery so that he can confirm to the rest of West Africa once again who’s boss!
