Aylesbury boxer Nathan Graham says he is ‘gutted’ after his proposed big fight with UK number two Lee Purdy was cancelled.

Due to take place at Alexandra Palace on September 8, Graham knew a win would launch him in to the top 10. However, his opponent has since withdrawn to take on a title fight. A replacement bout is being arranged for the end of September.

The fight was set to be on a massive bill headlined by Darren Barker and Tony Bellew which was due to be screened live on Sky Sports.
