Tyler Goodjohn has been forced to pull out of his English title showdown next month after fracturing his right hand.

The St Ives Boxing Academy star was hurt in a sparring session yesterday as he prepared for the March 19 battle against Johnny Garton at the York Hall in London for the welterweight crown.

“I’m devastated to say I’m out of the fight,” tweeted Goodjohn. “Sorry to boxing fans.”
