Jordan Gill will have to wait even longer to make a return to the ring.

The Chatteris fighter was due to step back through the ropes for the first time in 14 months at a dinner show in Sheffied this Friday (12), but took to Facebook today to announce that the show has been cancelled.

He said: “I’m absolutely gutted that I’m not going to be fighting and sorry to let every down again.

“I know people have booked time off work and booked hotels. Please understand this is out of my control and I am really sorry.”

This is the second time this year that the 22-year-old has been hit by a cancellation.

He was due to fight on undercard of Chris Eubank Jr’s IBO World super middleweight title fight in February, only for his hopes to be dashed at the 11th hour due as the headline fight overran.
