Joey Gilbert is canceling a Saturday night Halloween fight in Pennsylvania, the former Wolf Pack boxer announced on his Twitter page on Friday.
Gilbert posted the following tweet:
"2 everyone who didn't hear, sponsors/friends/fans; I had 2 pull out of my fight Sat due 2 a flu/virus I've had 4 almost a month now."
Gilbert was supposed to fight Philadelphia native Dhafir "No Fear" Smith.
One report says Gilbert has indicated he still wants to fight Smith after he recovers from his illness.
