Hyland Off May 18th Card With Injury, Card Cancelled


POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (May 9, 2013) – A minor shoulder injury suffered during training camp has forced Irish featherweight contender Patrick “The Punisher” Hyland to withdraw from his scheduled main event fight May 18 at Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.  Final Round Promotions announced today that the entire “The Heat Is On” card has been cancelled.


Hyland (27-1, 12 KOs), rated No. 13 by the World Boxing Association (WBA), has a muscle pull in his right shoulder.  The 29-year-old Hyland, a native of Dublin, lives in Marlboro, New York.


“Patrick is under doctor’s orders to stop training for two weeks and undergo treatment,” promoter Mike Pascale (Final Round Promotions) explained.  “We’re all disappointed but injuries, unfortunately, are part of boxing.  We’ve already started looking at a few possible dates for a rescheduled show featuring Patrick, but we need to wait for his medical report in two weeks to know his physical status, before we can book a date.  This is just a minor bump in the road for Patrick, who will not have any permanent damage from this injury, as he continues on his journey towards a world title.”


Anybody who has tickets for the cancelled May 18 show can be reimbursed at point of purchase (Mid-Hudson Civic Center or Ticketmaster outlets).
