AQIB Fiaz’s clash with Kane Baker is set to be rescheduled for next month.

The Lees prospect was pulled out by trainer Jamie Moore on the eve of his outing at Matchroom’s ‘Fight Camp’ last Friday night, August 7, after feeling unwell.

It left a distraught Baker without a fight having like Fiaz, gone through all the Covid-19 protocols ahead of the behind closed doors fight in the grounds of Matchroom Boxing’s headquarters in Brentwood, Essex.

The Oldham Times understands that Fiaz is okay and the pair will trade leather sooner rather than later after Hearn promised Baker he would not have to wait long to get his chance on the big stage.

Moore was sympathetic to the Birmingham man’s plight but insisted he was simply doing what was in the best interests of his fighter.

“Tough decision last night to pull @AqibFiazBoxing out of tonight’s fight, but the right one,” the former British and European light-middleweight champion said on social media. “He wanted to fight, fighters do, but I knew he wasn’t right and I had to do the right thing.

“Health is the most important thing and it would’ve been wrong to let him fight the way he was.

“Thanks to @MatchroomBoxing for understanding a tough situation, and apologies to Kane Baker, hopefully he understands and we can reschedule the fight as soon as things are okay.”

Fiaz, who was looking to make it six wins out of six on his Matchroom debut after signing with the major promotional outfit, had been on site in Essex since the prior Monday.

A coronavirus test that day came back clear meaning he was allowed into the bio-secure ‘bubble’ in the run-up to fight night.

That included a scheduled appearance at a press conference on Wednesday with the 20-year-old also weighing in as planned on Thursday afternoon.

It was after that however that the former Northside ABC man was deemed too unwell to fight.

The fight would have opened the Sky Sports show headlined by Terri Harper’s thrilling draw with Natasha Jonas in the first world title fight between two British women.
