BOXING Tom Milch has seen his return to the ring KO’d by injury. A damaged eardrum sustained in sparring has forced Milch to scrap a six-round bout at York Hall planned for April 8. It’s a blow for the Bushey bruiser, who last fought November, but Milch says common sense had to prevail. He said: “It’s frustrating but these things happen in boxing. There’s no point taking a chance.”
