Chris ‘2 Slick’ Kongo’s boxing début delayed

Ex Lynn ABC amateur Chris ‘2 Slick’ Kongo will have to wait until this Saturday to make his professional boxing début after his planned fight last weekend was postponed.

The 23-year-old, who boxed as Chris Mbwakongo as an amateur, was due to be on a Mickey Helliet bill at York Hall, Bethnal Green last Saturday.

But that event had to be cancelled due to a stabbing incident outside the East London venue, considered to be the home of small hall boxing.

Promoter Helliet confirmed on his twitter account that the fatal incident led to the venue being declared a crime scene, and the cancellation of his event.

The Southwark boxer has confirmed that he will instead be in action this weekend, again at York Hall, in a show being put on by DoveBox Promotions.
