CORPUS CHRISTI - The promoters of the HBO Boxing After Dark fights set for later this month at the American Bank Center have canceled the event due to an injury to one of the fighters in the main event.
Mike Perez suffered an injury to his shoulder during a sparring event. He was scheduled to fight Bryant Jennings on May 24th in Corpus Christi.
The winner of the event was to become an automatic challenger for the WBC heavyweight title.
Jennings has a record of 18-0-0 (10KOs). Perez has a record of 20-0-1 (12KOs) since moving from Cuba to Ireland where he launched his professional career in 2008.
