Naseem Hamed underwent keyhole surgery yesterday on the right hand damaged winning the World Organisation featherweight title against Steve Robinson. Hamed pulled out of his first defence of the title for the second time against the Mexican, Arnulfo Castillo, scheduled for 10 February at London Arena.

Richie Woodhall, of Telford, has a change of opponent for the second defence of his European middleweight title on 31 January. Woodhall was to tackle the German champion Salvador Yanez at the Aston Villa Leisure Centre but will now face Rochdale's Derek Wormald.
