A hearing to determine whether Joe Mesi should resume boxing was postponed until June after the suspended heavyweight changed lawyers.

Keith Kizer, Nevada's chief deputy attorney general, said Thursday the Nevada State Athletic Commission granted Mesi's request to postpone next Thursday's hearing to allow the boxer's new legal team -- headed by Buffalo's Paul Cambria -- time to research the case.

A new date hasn't been set.
