FRANK BUGLIONI has been forced to pull out of his light-heavyweight British title challenge against Hosea Burton after suffering a nasty cut while sparring.

The former super-middleweight world title challenger was scheduled to meet Burton at Manchester Arena on September 24, on the undercard of Anthony Crolla’s lightweight title fight with Jorge Linares.

However yesterday he took to social media to reveal he will no longer fight Burton on that date after picking up a cut.
