Essuman looks to reschedule fight after opponent pulls out with ankle injury


Botswana-born British boxer Essuman (13-0, 5 KOs) is looking to reschedule his bout with Frenchman Cedrick Peynaud (8-7-3, 4 KOs) in the next three weeks as he looks to earn a British title shot before the end of the year.
Essuman was expected to face Peynaud last Saturday 25th July 2020 as an undercard to the Joe Joyce v Michael Wallisch bout but Peynaud had to pull out due to an ankle injury he suffered during fight week.
“It was disappointing,” Essuman told Boxing Social. “I got to the hotel, did the Covid-19 testing, had my first session of ticking over and that. Then, later on, that evening, I get a knock on the door from the coach [Barrington Brown] saying the fight fell through.”
“At first, I thought my coach was playing a prank on me, I was thinking: ‘Really?’ It took a while to sink in. I got told later on that they are trying to reschedule it for maybe two or three weeks away.”
“If that’s the case, I’ll keep ticking over and it gives me more time to sharpen my tools. I’ll be back and ready in no time.” He further said
The 31-year-old born in Bostwana to a Ghanaian father has held the English Welterweight title since 2018 and signed a promotional agreement with the legendary Frank Warren to fight under the Queensberry Promotions banner.
