Naseem Hamed's first defence of his World Organisation featherweight title could be in doubt after the Sheffield fighter hurt a hand in training.

Hamed, nicknamed the Prince, is due to fight the Mexican, Arnulfo Castillo, at London Arena on 9 December, but the fight might have to be put back to the New Year.

The 21-year-old won the title by beating Wales' Steve Robinson in Cardiff in September. He was previously the World Council international super-bantamweight title holder, a crown which he successfully defended four times.
