Evolucao Thai Explains Vieira vs Whitlock Fight Cancellation
August 27, 2012, Toronto- Today, Evolucao Thai would like to clarify the cancellation of Fernando Vieira’s ﬁght against Lyndon Whitlock.
Fernando Vieira and the entire Evolucao team gives its sincere apology to The Score Fighting Series, Lyndon Whitlock and the fans for the short notice cancellation of the ﬁght.
Before the fight, Fernando Vieira was to undergo medical examinations in Montreal, Quebec. However, since Fernando’s immigration process is still incomplete, the cost of the exam was extremely high – $4,000 more than the purse he was going to receive for his upcoming ght. Fernando went to get the same examination done in Montreal for a fairer price, however, the test results was not available in time for the ght. Fernando was then directed to an alternate clinic in Toronto that would do the test again, how-ever these results would also not be ready in time. Therefore Fernando was left unable to compete for his ght, due to the complications with the necessary medical exams.
The Evolucao Thai team would like it to be clear that they did everything within their ability to assist Fernando in preparation for his fight. There was nothing more that the Evolucao Thai team and Fernando could do to receive the documentation in time.
It is an immense disappointment for all of us to have cancelled the ght. As we all know Lyndon Whitlock and Fernando had trained very hard in preparation for the event and we hope to never run into this type of situation ever again. Once again, we apologize to everyone involved, especially The Score Fighting Series and Lyndon Whitlock.
