You have to feel bad for Chris Camozzi. Brisbane is a long way to travel for a cancellation to happen.

Camozzi was due to make his ACB debut on Saturday, Silva has gone 2-2 since joining the promotion.

You gotta feel he would have fought anyone to stay on the card!

He took to Twitter to say “Bummed to say the least. I was really looking forward to fighting Saturday for”

Apparently Thiago couldn’t make it so Fight has been scrapped. Couldn’t find a replacement in time. Thank you @ACB_League for trying to find another opponent.
