Weights And Quotes From London Ė Drama As Bailey Fails To Make Weight

PhilBoxing.com


There was drama earlier at the weigh in for tomorrows Southern Area Featherweight Title clash at York Hall in London, between defending Champion Ian Bailey and challenger Dan Naylor, after Bailey failed to make the Championship weight.

Ian Bailey Ė 9st 3 ľ lbs


ďUnfortunately itís my fault, yeah Iíll have to look into that in the future.
I now have two options, move up a weight, or get in touch with someone that really knows how to make sure I can make the weight, Itís a science and itís so important to have someone who knows their stuff.
Itís going to be a wicked fight, even though I canít retain the title.
Hopefully we can agree to do a rematch later on and Iíll make sure I can make the weight then.Ē

Dan Naylor Ė 8st 12 Ĺ Lbs

ďYeah bang on, I made sure I did everything properly and am pleased I made the weight, even though I hadnít fought at Featherweight for a few years, we always knew I could make that weight, so yeah Iím pleased with the result Ė on the scales.

I can win it, obviously heís failed the weight but itís still there for me to win.

I donít think the weight is going to make any difference tomorrow, itís going to be a real good battle, the fans are going to love it.Ē

Promoter Johnny Eames then spoke briefly about the fight.

ďIím a little bit disappointed Ian hasnít made the weight, I could have tried to get him to lose the weight, but my decision was not to, so how it is the title fight carries on, but Ian canít retain the title.

Itís down to Dan Naylor to win it, should Ian win then the title becomes vacant. Itís still a good ten rounder.
The rest of the undercard is all in place and Iím sure itíll be a great night of boxing for the fans.

The first show was good, this one will be even better.

As I said Iím disappointed Ian didnít make the weight, for whatever reason, but these things happen and Iím pleased that the BBBofC have allowed the fight to still go ahead.

Finally I want to put a big thanks out to new partners on the shows, Baz Rahman and his brother Shaz Ė Baz and Shaz, that sounds like a singing duo, but itís not Ė theyíve been a great help and Iím sure with us putting on a great show again theyíll enjoy the night.

I know that itís going to be a great night of boxing for those that come, those that didnít well your going to miss a really great night.Ē

Ian Bailey versus Dan Naylor Southern Area Featherweight title clash headlines the Johnny Eames TRAD TKO Events promoted ĎTurf Warí at York Hall, Bethnal Green, London on Saturday 27th July 2013.
