Crestfallen Chatteris pro fighter Jordan Gill’s big bout live on ITV had the plug pulled at the last minute on Saturday night.
The unbeaten 22-year-old featherweight’s opponent was changed five times before he was pulled from the undercard to Chris Eubank Junior’s IBO super-middleweight showdown with Renold Quinlan at London’s Olympia.
The show on the new ITV Box Office channel ran over time and Gill stated on Facebook: “So my fight didn’t go ahead tonight on the Eubank bill, after five opponents in a week, and being ready with my gloves on for four hours, it wasn’t meant to be.
“I was a live float, but the show over-ran and legally they couldn’t let me box after 12am.
“I’m absolutely heartbroken after working so hard for this entire training camp.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to the army of fans that came to support me from the Fens!
“This was supposed to be a good start to a big 2017 for me, and it still will be.
“Titles are coming next! Glad to see all ‘Team Gill’ I’ve seen so far have had a good night nonetheless. Nobody is more gutted than me, I can assure you! I’ll be in the ring again very soon.”
