Kang Off Battlefield Card
There were rumours today that Battlefield Fight League was looking for a replacement for Denis Kang who was pulling out due to injury. The rumours were confirmed within the past hour when Kang poste the following statement on his Facebook wall:
After much consideration with my manager and coaches, I have to make the very hard decision to postpone my fight with Battlefield FL on march 26th. I can’t give a half-ass performance in a fight that means so much to me. I will recover properly and be back at full power for the next event May 28th.
Kang was scheduled to face Jesse Taylor at Battlefield Fight League 7 in 10 days time. Battlefield president Jay Golshani also confirmed the withdrawal with Top MMA News saying that Kang had an injured bicep and that they are actively looking for a replacement.
The Canadian is also scheduled to face Eun Soo Lee in Korea’s Road FC 2 card on April 16th. There is no word on whether his injury will force him to pull out of this event scheduled one month from now.
