Richie Woodhall suffers set back.

Former WBC world super-middleweight champion Richie Woodhall has suffered a setback in his bid to secure a new title shot after being forced to scrap plans to fight in Doncaster tonight.

No suitable opponent could be found for Woodhall after the British Boxing Board of Control refused to sanction a fight with Southampton's Peter Mitchell, who has been out of the ring for two years.

Birmingham's Paul Wesley did put himself forward as a potential opponent for Telford-based Woodhall. But Wesley could have gone into the ring considerably heavier than Woodhall who was planning to tip the scales at around 12 stone.
