Nakash-Del Valle Cancelled

The proposed bout between Ran Nakash and Lou Del Valle didn't take place last Saturday. This is the second time that a fight between the two has been cancelled. Last year in July, Del Valle backed out of the match. Nakash went on to face Victor Barragan, winning a ten round unanimous decision.

This time around, a fight involving Nakash, which was to take place at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills California, failed to materialize. Two boxing matches and three MMA fights did take place on the front lawn of the mansion. Playboy's website had touted Evander Holyfield's presence in the audience before the event. But Holyfield was in Germany as a guest of Sauerland Event, watching as heavyweight Alexander Povetkin defeated Ruslan Chagaev. Holyfield hopes to take on Povetkin later this year. It had been postulated that Holyfield could take on the winner of Nakash-Del Valle.

Ran Nakash has not fought since April 2, a twelve round unanimous decision loss to beltholder Marco Huck.
