Lion Fight Promotions announced that Samy Sana will not be fighting Regian Eersel at Lion Fight 34.
Specific reasons were not given for the removal of Sana. Dewitt “DC” Pratt will step up on short notice and get a shot at the Lion Fight super middleweight title on February 3, 2017 in Las Vegas.
Pratt hails from Nassau, Bahamas and has trained extensively in Thailand, as well as with current Lion Fight champion “Smokin” Jo Nattawut at Bangkok Boxing in Atlanta, Georgia. He has not competed since December 2015 as he has been recovering from reconstructive knee surgery to repair a torn ACL and two tears in his meniscus.
The bout will headline an action packed card that will also feature the Lion Fight women’s super bantamweight title on the line when champion Iman Barlow (@ImanBarlow) takes on Meryum Uslu.
Lion Fight 34 will air live on AXS TV from the Tropicana in Las Vegas.
