Wade Ryan’s anticipated clash with Dennis Hogan will have to wait until tonight, following the decision by No Limit Boxing to postpone the fight card 24 hours due to flooding in Brisbane.

Ryan has been preparing to face the Queensland-based Irishman in what will be a world title eliminator for the International Boxing Organisation’s super-welterweight title.

“Due to weather impacting Brisbane, No Limit Boxing has today confirmed the 24-hour postponement of its scheduled fight night on Wednesday, March 2 at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre,” No Limit Boxing said in a statement on Monday afternoon.

“The safety of staff, spectators and participants is our main concern, as we continue to work with venues through Brisbane to secure a suitable replacement location.”

After deliberating on Monday night, No Limit boxing confirmed in a press conference on Tuesday that the fight card will be moved from the Brisbane Convention Centre to the Nissan Arena.

No Limit CEO, George Rose paid tribute to people in Queensland and NSW who are battling ongoing floods.

“It really has been a hectic 72 hours for us and while we thought we’ve had it pretty tough, it has been very hard for a lot of people across south-east Queensland and down to the North Coast of NSW,” Rose said on Tuesday afternoon.

“The reason why we’ve decided to push forward with the event is because we are committed to the fighters, we’ve got 14 fighters here who have sacrificed the last three months to prepare themselves for this fight.

“One thing we pride ourselves on here at No Limit is we like to provide the best platform for our fighters, we’ve got great fighters here in Australia and we want to make sure we provide the best opportunity. And in doing so we’ve made sure in pushing on with this event.”

The Tuesday press conference saw Ryan get the opportunity to speak to the public before going toe to toe with Hogan on Thursday night.

“Credit to No Limit for giving us fighters the opportunity in such circumstances,” Ryan said.

“We’re one fight off fighting for a world title, we’ve had a good preparation and everything is on track.

“We face Dennis Hogan on Thursday night in what will be a cracker.”

The fight will be in the co-main-event slot with Tim Tszyu’s younger brother, Nikita making his professional debut against Aaron Stahl. Fights will be featured on Foxtel and Kayo.
