Buakaw vs Pinca third time cancelled

Fabio Pinca pulls out from All Star Fight against Buakaw Banchamek
French star Fabio Pinca was expected to take on renowned Thai fighter Buakaw Banchamek on Sunday December 10 in Paris. The pair headlined the international fight bill at All Star Fight 3 that takes place at Halle Georges Carpentier. However, according to French website Boxemag, as well as other sources, the bout is no longer featured on the card.

Late last month Fabio Pinca, whose resume includes 135 pro fights, suffered the first defeat by knockout in his career. He was dropped with the left hook in the second round by Russian Anvar Boynazarov at Glory 47 Lyon.

Pinca has recently announced on his page on Facebook that “unfortunately he would not have enough time to get ready” to take on Buakaw. He apologized to those who have already purchased the tickets to witness the “Fight of the Legends”.

This is the third time when the Buakaw vs Pinca fight gets cancelled. Their pair was originally scheduled to fight in 2012, and then in 2014, challenging for WMC World junior middleweight title.

Buakaw remains in the headliner of All Star Fight 3. The name of his new opponent as well as other match ups are expected to be announced in the coming days. The current line up can be found below.
