James and Sheil to miss Cage Warriors 51
INJURIES have forced some late changes to be made to the card for Cage Warriors 51, which takes place at The Helix in Dublin, Ireland this Monday, December 31.
John Michael Sheil has sustained a knee injury and has had to withdraw from his welterweight clash with Jack Mason. Sheil (8-1) is now expected to face a lengthy lay-off.
Meanwhile, the bantamweight bout between Liam James (pictured) and Alan Philpott has been pulled from the card following an injury to James (6-4).
The 28-year-old Englishman also damaged his knee in training last week but a suitable replacement opponent for Philpott (7-3) could unfortunately not be found at such a late stage.
