Arm injury delays Barker return

Middleweight Darren Barker has been ruled out of his fight, scheduled for September 8 against Italian Simone Rotolo, after suffering an arm injury. “I am gutted for Darren as he’s been looking great in training and I know he was ready to get back to what he does best,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “The only good news is that it is a new injury rather than an aggravation of an old one.”
