James had a neck injury before this bout but did not want to pull out, the guy is a warrior. Also he has been injured since the fight because of the same injury.
We made no excuses regards Davey's win, he fought a fantastic fight and deserved it but Davey even he told me he thought he was done when the arm was trapped.
Hardly the walk over you describe.
That's a shit load of changes!!
are there much more fights than the 7 listed? If so when are we finding out about them?
At the moment there are seven pro fights on the card, plus another four bouts on the amateur undercard. There may be one more pro fight added.
All these pull-outs came together in the space of a couple of days and Ian Dean did an outstanding job of sourcing replacements and keeping the card together.
That card is still looking great - Sutherland vs. Askham is an awesome fight, McCrum vs. Enlund is cool too. Shame about Fishgold vs. Whiteford, but shit happens! Wouldn't be surprised if there were other factors involved there.
Beer vs. Turner is worthy of any main card!

Huge step up in competition for Askham.
