Shine Fights: Worlds Collide Event Canceled

It’s fair to say that it’s not been a great day for the Shine Fights promotion.

Earlier today the headline bout of their ‘World’s Collide’ event between Din Thomas and Ricardo Mayorga was pulled after boxing promoter Don King went to court to serve an injunction preventing Mayorga from competing.

Despite that blow the company had sought to go ahead with the pay-per-view event as planned with Murilo ‘Ninja’ Rua’s bout with David Heath moved up to the top of the bill.

Unfortunately the North Carolina Boxing Authority had other ideas and elected to cancel the event entirely just as people began to file into the arena to watch the evening’s fights.

Ross launched MMA Insight (previously FightOfTheNight.com) in 2009 as a way to channel his passion for the sport of mixed martial arts. He's since penned countless news stories and live fight reports along with dozens of feature articles as the lead writer for the site, reaching millions of fans in the process.
