​Ward fight put back to next year

28th October 2016

Ward fight put back to next year

The much-anticipated fight between the world's two oldest boxers, including 60-year-old Steve Ward from Mansfield, has been put back to next year.

The bout, with American Mike Palmer – who is three months Ward's junior – was due to take place in either November or December in Bismarck, North Dakota.

But, Ward says that the state's boxing authority has been getting cold feet on the fight due to the pair's ages and it has now been delayed.

Talks are now ongoing to try and get the bout rescheduled for next year, possibly in April.

Should negotiations fall through, Ward revealed that he has plans in place for a different venue.
