PETER Cope’s big title fight is off.

The unbeaten Hartlepool boxer was due to take on Geordie fighter Dougie Curran for the vacant Northern Area super-featherweight championship.

But Curran has pulled out tonight, citing a trapped nerve in his back.

Cope’s coach, and dad, Peter Jnr said: “It’s sickening. Everyone is absolutely gutted.”

Promoter Steve Wraith is looking for a new opponent though even he does, the NAT would not be on the line.
