The duo were set to reignite their grudge in the boxing ring on February 9 at London arena Indigo O2. It has now been confirmed via social media that the match has now been cancelled as Luke has withdrawn from the fight.
In a social media post, boxing promoters DKM Plush explained the decision, writing: "It is with deep regret we announce that the scheduled bout between Luke Worley & Jordan Gayle has been canceled by ourselves (DKM Plush)."
"Boxing can be a brutal, unforgiving sport & due to the comments outside of training for the scheduled bout, we have concerns that Luke hasn't been able to train as we would expect from him worthy of a 5 x 2 min bout on February 9th."
DKM Plush went on to state that they understand that opportunities arise for people who appear on reality shows like Married at First Sight and that potential fighters may not have enough time to commit to a regulated training camp as a result.
They continued: "However, as much as we understand the busy schedules of both fights, we would still expect a full camp to take place to ensure both are ready to enter the ring on Feb 9th & unfortunately, this hasn't been the case for Luke."
"Whilst we regret this bout between Luke and Jordan will not take place, we are happy to announce that Jordan will still be fighting on the action-packed card & a new opponent will be announced in the coming days."
