Jack Massey’s proposed fight in Manchester next month has been cancelled.

Unbeaten cruiserweight Massey was due to appear on the undercard of Anthony Crolla’s world title fight in Manchester on January 23, 2015.

However, Crolla suffered serious injuries when confronting burglars in his home recently.

The Manchester fighter was set to defend his WBA world lightweight title.

A new date has yet to be confirmed for the Manchester Arena show.
