British promotion SFS announced Saturday that the July 28 event scheduled for Newcastle, United Kingdom has been cancelled. According to a social media post by David Weild of SFS Newcastle, there were issues with local authorities, who would only allow 500 spectators because alcohol was being served. “Fighter pull-outs” was another reason.
The promotion’s most recent event on June 24 was an outstanding show. Fabio Reis of Portugal won a China fight contract with EM Legend by defeating Andy Turland and Juri Krivenko in a four man 65kg tournament. England’s Nicola Barke won the four woman 60kg tournament impressively.
