On Sunday, NWA Coastal Iron Man Champion Kevin Tibbs contacted Commissioner Tommy Cairo, and advised that he had separated his shoulder in training for his match at “Proving Grounds II”, scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 13th.
Cairo was unimpressed. “Kevin Tibbs is scheduled to defend that title at the Bayville Elks Lodge this coming Saturday, and I expect nothing less than that”, the Commissioner was quoted as saying. He added “if Mr. Tibbs is unable or unwilling to defend the title that he worked so hard to acquire, then we’ll just have to put it on someone else”.
Sebastian Cruz, who became the number one contender for the Iron Man Championship with a narrow defeat of “The American Psycho” Alex Payne, was unavailable for comment. Cairo did indicate that he was considering other options with regard to this title for Saturday night.
