IFL Welterweight champion Jay Hieron talks about his current fighting situation after the IFL cancelled its August show.
IFL President Jay Larkin announced at a press conference on Tuesday that the IFL must cancel its August 15 show at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ, due to lack of funding. He also warned that if a new investors are not found, the IFL will be forced to seek bankruptcy protection from its creditors.
Larkin also stated that the company will continue to downsize its staff to keep the company a float, but stated No fighters will be cut at this point.
This news doesn’t come as a surprise, as the IFL made some naive financial decisions from the start.
