“He injured his left hand during a sparring session on Tuesday,” said Jose Nunez, Guzman’s manager. “Fortunately, it was not broken or fractured; there is only tissue damage on his wrist and pinkie finger. Las Vegas Doctor Steven Sanders recommended two weeks rest for his left hand, but he will continue to train at the gym using only his right hand.”
The HBO Boxing After Dark card, which was headlined by Guzman vs Katsidis and was also scheduled to feature a WBC featherweight championship bout between Oscar Larios and Jorge Linares, has been cancelled.
A future date and site for Guzman-Katsidis will be announced when details of the event are confirmed. Anyone who has purchased tickets for this event will be fully refunded through their point of purchase.
