Calzaghe postpones second event

Kerry Hope fights Taz Jones
Previously unbeaten Kerry Hope has lost his last two fights

Calzaghe Promotions have postponed their second boxing bill as one of the top fighters is ill.

Kerry Hope was due to meet English journeyman Tony Randell for a light-middleweight bout at Merthyr Tydfil's Rhydycar leisure centre on Saturday.

But Hope has been forced to withdraw due to a chest infection and the show has been rescheduled to 24 May.

Hope was due to fight Taz Jones for a Welsh title rematch but Jones pulled-out and Randell was a late replacement.

The 27-year-old - who was stopped by Jones in the fourth round of their Welsh title tilt in February - was to be the main event in his home town of Merthyr against a fighter that has lost 20 of his 30 professional bouts.

But Hope's illness has caused Calzaghe Promotions - run by former two-weight world champion Joe Calzaghe and his father Enzo - to delay their second show.
