Event Notes: Abu Dhabi Fight Night Postponed From Thursday To December 19

The first professional boxing event to be held in Abu Dhabi "has been postponed from Thursday" until Dec. 19 after organizers "failed to secure UAE visas for travelling fighters." Lion Heart Boxing Promotions' Edward Mendy "had arranged for a full card of fights to be held at the 5,000-capacity du Forum on Yas Island." Mendy: "We had no choice but to postpone the show as four African fighters on the card did not get visas" (GULF NEWS, 10/15). ... The Dubai Cricket Council has "warned private tournament organisers that any event that does not seek their written permission will be declared as 'unauthorised.'" The council has also asked "private ground owners not to lease out their grounds to such tournament organisers if organisers cannot present any approval letter from the concerned cricket council" (GULF NEWS, 10/15).
