Nick Quigley will have to wait a little longer before undertaking his dream shot at the world title.

The Liverpool middleweight, who has boxed three times since returning to the ring following a three-year retirement, was set to vie for the vacant WBU crown at the Olympia.

Quigley, however, has been forced to wait a little longer for his chance at global glory after his opponent, George Hillyard, alerted Stephen Vaughan and VB Promotions that he would be unable to make the weight for the scheduled December 5 contest.

As a result, the show, which will feature Quigley in a six-round clash, has been moved to Omnia Nightclub, formerly Envi, in the city on the same night.

Elsewhere on the card, Ryan Moorhead will fight over eight rounds for the vacant International Masters Bronze featherweight title, while Bernard Roe and Lee Boyce are set for action.

And Jay Carney looks to get revenge on an old foe in the shape of Jack Johnson as MBC International cruiserweight king Tony Moran returns in a six-round contest.

Tickets, priced at £30 and £50, are available from or by phone on 03332 000905, with further information available on request.
