CALLUM Johnson has been left frustrated once again after his scheduled fight against Dubliner Ciaran Healy has been cancelled.

The Boston light heavyweight was scheduled to meet his opponent on December 9, but the bout was postponed to January 27 after joint headliner George Groves pulled out due to injury.

But the bill has now been axed.

An announcement on the website of venue Liverpool Echo Arena read: “Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond their control, Frank Warren Promotions have no option but to cancel the championship boxing event.”

Johnson says he wants six fights this year.
