Andy Lee out of March 17 MSG fight

Subtract one Irish middleweight from the March 17 Madison Square Garden Theater St. Patrick's Day card. Andy Lee was slated to appear on the card, which is headlined by Sergio Martinez against Irishman Matthew Macklin. It had been a grind finding Lee a foe, but that search is over. A source told NYFightBlog that the fighter is off the card.

A Don George-Edwin Rodriguez fight will be inserted instead, the source told us.
