Cobo Arena was to host a fairly impressive fight card with some well known names. Last minute injuries has a devastatingly negative impact on the show.
Jeremy Horn was headlining in a bout with Jake Rosholt until, a neck injury caused Rosholt to pull out of the fight.
“I had a sharp pain go through my neck and kind of down my arm... had a lot of numbness and tingling through my arm, real, real sore,” said Rosholt, describing the injury. “I’ve seen three doctors since then. I was advised by all of them that it wasn’t going to be good to fight."
“Pretty much what I’ve heard is that I need to have an MRI done. I haven’t had that, just some X-rays. Most likely I’ll have some bulging discs in my neck that I have to give some rest to. I should be back and healthy in not too long.”
Earlier, Ray Mercer withdrew from a fight with super-heavyweight Ron Sparks.
Tony Hervey’s opponent was a complete no-show.
