Brandon “The Cannon” Berry, the West Forks product who has been a staple of the boxing portion of recent New England Fights shows, will be sidelined indefinitely after re-tearing his left labrum in his most recent fight.

Berry wrote in a Facebook post this week that a recent magnetic resonance imaging test revealed the injury, which he suffered during a unanimous-decision loss to James Lester on June 18 in Lewiston.

Berry, 11-2-1 as a professional, originally injured the labrum during his only other professional loss, a third-round TKO to Freddy Sanchez in Portland on Nov. 15, 2014.

He underwent surgery the following January and returned to the ring after an eight-month layoff with a second-round stoppage of Engelberto Valenzuela on July 17, 2015, in Skowhegan.

A date has not been set for his upcoming surgery.

“I had a lot of big plans in the boxing world this fall but they will have to wait until spring,” Berry wrote. “I have been down this road before, it’s just a little setback.”
