Just as news of the recent cancellation of CFFC 6 broke, other promotions are already trying to bid on the fight. According to The Wrestling Observer, their are three parties making offers with the fighters. One being EliteXC which has a show November 10 on Showtime. Another is Palace Fighting Championships who wants to have the fight on its October 18th show in Lemoore, CA. And finally an unnamed show is reported to already have secured an agreement with Kimbo, but still needs Tank Abbott to sigh on.
Attempts to save the Tank Abbott vs. Kimbo Slice fight that was scheduled for 10/12 in Atlantic City, which fell apart yesterday when an investor pulled out, are ongoing.
Three different promotions have put in bids to save the freak show like fight. According to sources close to the negotiations, one group, which wasn’t named, seems to have a leg up on securing the fight within the next two weeks. Slice has already verbally agreed and it’s up to Abbott to agree.
