Don King Productions has released light heavyweight Ryan “Irish Outlaw” Coyne according to the Riverfront Times. The move came following Coyne’s loss to Marcus Oliveira in a WBA eliminator on April 12 in Las Vegas. The relationship between DKP and Coyne had become increasingly toxic with both parties filing lawsuits against the other.
WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck has extended his contract with Sauerland Event until the end of 2014. It’s a six fight pact that will kick off with a rematch with Ola Afolabi.
