The other boy had visa problems. It's been re-arranged but can't remember for what date (June, I think).

from the setanta site

Alex Arthur's WBO World Super-Featherweight title clash against Joan Guzman has been postponed because the Dominican Republican has not received his Visa in time.
Edinburgh star Arthur, the interim champion, was scheduled to meet full title-holder Guzman on May 3rd at the Meadowbank Stadium but with Guzman unable to travel, promoter Frank Warren will announce a new date for the super-fight shortly.

:boo hoo:

Arthur was never gonna make the weight and they did not even sell enough tickets to cover costs ....

see what happens when you are a celtic fan and you have been trying to kid people on that you are a Hibs fan.

Really good boxer and glad he is scottish but dont try to play the Hibs card when yo aint even a hibee alex :agree:

He has been given the belt now as Guzman has given it up.

Ah Lawman, Arthur is a Hibee by the way. He just distances himself from it all so Jambos will go to his fights.
