NORTHWICH amateur John Harrison’s preparation for the Liverpool and Cheshire Championships later this year was disrupted when an opponent did not turn up to fight.

The accountant, who works in Winsford, was on the card at South Cheshire Amateur Boxing Club’s maiden show at Nantwich Civic Hall on Saturday night.

“I’ve still got high hopes for John, and will try to arrange another bout quickly,” said Harrison’s coach Frank Collins.
