Tim Sylvia's Boxing Match Cancelled, Will Now Be an MMA Fight

Frontpaged by Kid Nate.

I saw that Bruz created a FanPost about Tim Sylvia and Ray Mercers boxing match being canceled. I immediately called Tim's trainer who is down in Alabama with Tim. He told me the fight had been canceled and if they tried to have a boxing match the police would arrest Ray, Tim and Monte Cox. They have since agreed to turn it into a MMA fight and it will go on as the main event at Adrenaline III. This obviously swings the fight in Tim's advantage since Kimbo Slice was able to finish Mercer off in their MMA bout with a choke. I'm glad they were able to work something out, as both fighters have trained for months and deserve a payday for it.
