All Star Fight 3 Paris postponed

Muay Thai event All Star Fight 3 was expected to take place in French capital this coming Sunday December 10. However on Monday the promotion announced that the event has been rescheduled for next year.

Initially Muay Thai celebrity Buakaw Banchamek was lined up against French star Fabio Pinca. The latter was forced to pull out from the contest, after he suffered a defeat by knockout in his previous bout at Glory Kickboxing in Lyon.

The promotion then advised that Thai fighter would be taking on a different opponent, whose name was expected to be announced. Moreover, a nearly full fight card of All Star Fight 3 had been set.

Nevertheless, the whole event has been taken off December calendar, and rescheduled for next year. The new date is yet to be known.

“As we told you Fabio Pinca can not honor his fight, after the knockout he took. However, it will be done in 2018,” the organization posted on Facebook.

This is the third time when the Buakaw vs Pinca fight falls off. The pair was previously scheduled to fight in 2012, and then in 2014, challenging for WMC World junior middleweight title. We will have more information as soon as it becomes available.
