North Carolina Boxing Authority Executive Director Ken Pike and Superintendent Terrence Merriweather responded to MMAWeekly.com, answering all the questions about why the show was canceled.

"There were concerns about fighter safety and well being, that's why the fight was canceled," said Merriweather. "What we're talking about specifically is failing to have a doctor at the event, at the time for the fighters to be seen before the fights had started."

"North Carolina rules and (regulations) require the promoter to have all purse amounts to the boxing authority two hours before the first match-up, and those requirements were not met," said Merriweather.

According to sources at the event, fans were already in the building and seated when the commission decided to cancel the show, and that refunds would be issued this week.

if it's money problems why the show got cancelled, then I doubt it.

What are these guys thinking? You need a doctor ringside at a junior amateur silver gloved boxing event forchristsakes, let alone a pro MMA event. Every douchebag with a couple grand thinks he's gonna start the next greatest MMA promotion these days. The regulators may be just as sleazy, but its good to have them stop these mma events in-a-box.

Combination of not doing the right things to run a show and using an already contracted fighter. Don King, hate him or hate him, shed light on their bull.

One of the fighters as well as another website (can't recall which) said 25% of show money was given to all participants. Sorry, no link. At work and Twitter is blocked and where I got the info.

All of the fighters showed. They should be entitled to all of their show money. I know for a fact 25% of show money was NOT given to all participants.

 They lost so much money on the show, they probably only the paid the fighters a percentage of the show money.

It does not matter. The escrow account would have cancelled the show anyhow and Shine had to know they did not have the funds. Even if they had a doctor the show would have been cancelled.
