Saunders defense off; Khurtsidze arrested

By Togorashi

Queensberry Promotions were informed that WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders’ mandatory challenger Avtandil Khurtsidze was arrested yesterday in New York, indicted under the RICO Act. As such, their showdown scheduled for Saturday 8th July at the Copper Box Arena, cannot take place on that date as his promoter Lou DiBella has confirmed Khurtsidze will be unable to travel. The event at the Copper Box Arena on July 8th will still take place with other fighters.
