Still no confirmation on Lyell - Nelson bout

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The proposed fight between Billy Lyell and Willie Nelson in September at Packard Music Hall in Warren has a 50-50 chance of happening according to Jack Loew.

Loew tells 21 Sports that Lyell needs to get approval from the NABF because it's a title fight, and he's not ranked.

He also has to get medical clearance from the Ohio Boxing Commission and could undergo some tests.

Lowe says if Lyell is a "no go" they do have a short list of opponents who could step in.

Lowe confirmed that Nelson will fight someone at Packard Music Hall on September 28th.
