The July 8 fight at London’s CopperBox Arena between WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (24-0) and Avtandil Khurtsidze (33-2-2) has been postponed after the challenger was arrested in New York on charges related to organized crime.

Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions, which promotes Saunders, released the following statement: “We are currently planning to postpone the fight to a later date. However, due to the obvious seriousness of this matter, Queensberry Promotions are given no choice but to wait for more details to emerge before anything can be confirmed. Further information, including additions to the show, ticketing and refund options, will follow in due course.”

    Right…If you believe New York and it’s charges I have some Islands down in the Florida Keys I am willing to sell you!

    That’s New York controlled by Zionists and their Wall Street Buds who hate Russia.

    Soviet Union….This is joke right?
