Disregard the previous post.
Well, disregard the part about Santander Silgado fighting Harvey Jolly at the Aviator Complex in Brooklyn tonight.
The Silgado-Jolly fight was scratched from the card, which now features eight bouts, headlined by the Amanda Serrano-Kimberly Connor IBF super featherweight title scrap.
Havoc CEO Rob Diaz tells NYFightblog that Silgado-Jolly evaporated because
Silgado was four pounds over the weight limit (200 pounds) at Friday's weigh-in.
He said Jolly was offered more dough to fight the-four-pounds-over Silgado, and Jolly didn't want to do it.
"Jolly said he could fight ex cruiserweight champion O'Neil Bell for $4500, so I called his bluff, and he didn't take it. He took the $1000 guarantee and went home," Diaz said. For the record, Jolly has fought three of his last seven bouts at heavyweight (over 200 pounds).
Jolly was going to receive $2500 originally, and a bonus of $500 if he kayoed Silgado, according to Diaz.
NYFightblog is looking to touch base with Jolly, and get his side of the story ...
