KHALEEL Majid's professional boxing debut has been put on hold for a second time.

As reported in yesterday's Bolton News, the 21-year-old Bolton light-welterweight was due to take to the ring in the paid ranks for the first time tonight at London's O2 Arena.

But he was pulled out of the fight on Thursday night.

The Heaton fighter says he was withdrawn due to unforeseen circumstances.

In April, Majid, from Heaton, was due to have his first pro fight on the same bill and at the same venue but the show was cancelled when the main fight was called off due to injury.

Almost 500 people from Bolton and Manchester, where he trains, had bought tickets to go down to the capital and support Majid who says they will be refunded.
