We have been informed that the scheduled IBF Light Flyweight title defense of Filipino road warrior Johnriel Casimero against Mauricio Fuentes has fallen through.
The bout, originally scheduled for July 21st appears to have hit a snag over issues regarding television and sponsorship with Filipino "TV 5" (formerly ABC 5) being unable to accommodate the fight after Smart-Araneta have pulled out of sponsoring it.
Unfortunately for Casimero, who has now fought 6 of his last 7 on the road, it appears that he will have to be the away fighter once again.
No current news has emerged about a likely opponent though looking at the IBF rankings it shouldn't be that tough of a defense.
