From The Boxing Examiner: 43 year old Vancouver, British Coulmbia native Mike Buccanan (0-0-1) failed his pre fight medicals today and will not be fighting Colin (Fish) McFadden (pictured left) tonight on the Bute vs Magee card at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Unfortunately McFadden will not be fighting either, it was too short notice to find another opponent for McFadden who would have been making his highly anticipated professional debut. McFadden is managed by Cameron Dunkin and promoted by Bob Arum’s Top Rank Boxing out of Las Vegas, Nevada.
