WBO world featherweight champion Scott Harrison has been forced to delay next month's title defence after being struck down by food poisoning.
The Cambuslang fighter was scheduled to fight on 10 September at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall.
But Harrison's father and trainer Peter said: "Scott ate a dodgy fish while on holiday in Cyprus and he's still feeling weak now."
The bout is now expected to take place in October.
"There's no point in risking anything when we have the belt," added Harrison senior.
"You'd maybe take a chance if you were challenging for the title but not when you're defending it."
