MMA veteran Joe Riggs is going to have to wait a bit to make his professional boxing debut.

Riggs (50-18-1 MMA, 0-0 Boxing) was scheduled to fight in his home state of Arizona in a bout against David Damore (1-6-3 Boxing) on a Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Promotions event at Casino Del Sol’s AVA Amphitheater in Tucson.

However, the promotion announced at Wednesday’s weigh-ins that Damore was pulled from the bout, and the fight was canceled. No reason was given for the decision.

While Riggs is off the card, the event itself is still on. Tunisia’s Ikram Kerwat (9-1 Boxing) headlines against nine-time world title challenger Simone Da Silva (15-12 Boxing) of Brazil for the vacant WBC silver female lightweight championship.

The fight card will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.
