Arauz Injury Drama Forces August 1st LET BATTLE COMMENCE II to be Rescheduled to 15th August…with New Headline.


LET BATTLE COMMENCE II, in Association with PAPA JOHN’S PIZZA and NEON ENERGY DRINK, which was due to take place this Saturday 1st August and headlined by PBC & WBU International Champion Nathan Beattie (10-4-0) against Nicaraguan Milton Arauz (10-3-1) has had to be rescheduled due to Injury and further last minute dramas.  

Nicaragua’s Milton Arauz has been forced to withdraw, due to a hand injury, however more bad news emerged when hastily arranged replacement Julio Bendana, who flew in yesterday, was  informed he must self isolate for fourteen days. 

On hearing the news Promoter Lee Mcallister was left with no option but to request permission from the British & Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA) to reschedule the event to the 15th August.

A few hours later another spanner was thrown into the works, when Nathan Beattie announced he wouldn’t be able to box on August 15th, as he had booked a holiday and flies out this Sunday, the day after the original fight night. 

Further discussions with the British & Irish Boxing Authority ensued and late on Thursday night it was agreed that the Nathan Beattie versus either Milton Arauz or Julio Bendana would be rescheduled to later in the series and the original 15th August headline Lee Mcallister versus Edwin Palacios would replace Beattie-Arauz. 

Further negotiations led to an increase of contests from five to seven, three of which were changed to four rounders, so that the majority of those due to fight on either the original 1st and 15th August events would still get to compete.
