ST. THOMAS — Boxer John Jackson’s upcoming trial date will likely be delayed, after a judge allowed his attorney to withdraw from the case due to nonpayment.

Jackson, who is being held without bond at the federal prison in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, appeared in U.S. District Court on St. Thomas on Wednesday.
