We were originally supposed to have the show in Ghana, but because of changing Covid restrictions, we moved the fight to Dubai (UAE).The people of Dubai have been terrific to work with, and it is heartbreaking for the people of this country to mourn the loss of their leader. This delay will only build this great event even more, and Tevin and Mickey will continue to train as we reschedule.
