BATB has learned that the bout that was scheduled for Baltimore, MD's Glenn Dezurn, Jr. on Friday night in Philadelphia, PA was called off at the very last minute because Dezurn's slated opponent, Seifullah Jihad Wise of Philadelphia, suddenly refused to compete.
Wise weighed in at 137 1/2 pounds, two-and-a-half pounds over the contracted weight of 135 for the four-round encounter. Dezurn was a half-pound under. According to reports, Dezurn's camp still wanted to bout to proceed. However, Wise's camp apparently said no.
Dezurn (2-0, one KO) is slated to compete on the Ponytail Promotions card on Saturday, June 28 at Du Burns Arena in Baltimore.
