No Opponent for Oknin

Mor Oknin traveled from Israel to Los Angeles in the United States and then to Mexico for a fight scheduled yesterday at Plaza Monumental, a famed stadium in Tijuana. On Friday, he weighed in at 110.2 pounds. He did everything he was asked.

As of Friday night, the name of Oknin's opponent remained unknown. Or, to be more exact, there were three different names. None of the three weighed-in on Friday.

When it was time to fight on Saturday, no opponent showed up. Oknin was left without a foe and thus couldn't fight on an unusually cold night in Tijuana. He had traveled halfway around the world and was left to watch as Jaime Munguia stopped D'Mitrius Ballard in the third round of the main event with a series of left hooks to the body and head.

Hopefully, Oknin won't leave Mexico without a fight. He is scheduled to do battle on February 26 in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico.
