Unfortunately tonight’s six fight boxing show at the John Campbell Fitness Center has been postponed due to a bonding paperwork issue. The card was set for tonight and the commission at yesterday’s weigh-in made no mention of the oversight. A solution was drawn up but the New Jersey Boxing Commission would not budge in their stance. “I don’t understand this. We had all the paperwork that was asked of us and something came up at literally the last minute that had nothing to do with us ”, said Lamarr Johnson of Dungeon Warrior Promotions. “All tickets will be honored as we are aggressively weighing all the options to re-schedule the show as quickly as possible.”
