Sullivan Barrera postpones fight due to eye injury

August 2, 2018

Sullivan Barrera (21-2, 14 KOs) suffered an eye injury during a sparring session while training for his  upcoming August 18, 2018, bout against Seanie Monaghan (29-1, 17 KOs). To ensure Barrera is healthy before returning to the ring, Main Events, his promoter, has decided to postpone the Barrera-Monaghan fight.

Kathy Duva, Main Events' CEO explained, "We were all very excited about the Barrera-Monaghan bout appearing on this exciting new series. Unfortunately, injuries happen. If Sullivan is not ready to face Seanie in time to appear on the series, we will do everything in our power to deliver another exciting and entertaining event. We're thankful to be working with Facebook and Golden Boy on a series that gives us the ability to be flexible."

The fight was slated to be the second installment in the Golden Boy Fight Night on Facebook Watch series live from Sands Resort Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  An announcement is expected soon regarding an alternate date, site, and perhaps opponent for Monaghan.

Together with Golden Boy Promotions and Facebook, the decision was made to postpone the whole card, rather than make a last-minute substitute.
