Unfortunately and with great regret we have to cancel the Los Angeles tournament. 2 major factors came into play. 1) We have been unable to get a Doctor and without a Doctor we can not have the tournament. I even went as far as trying to get a Doctor from out of State who was willing to do it but were told the Doctor has to be with in the State of California. After 8 weeks of trying, calls, text messages, voice messages and e-mails, we were unable to get a Doctor.
2) and what kind of broke the camel’s back is receiving a phone call last night from our LBC president to tell me that I was being fined $1,000 for charging boxers. Since masters has started there has not been a master event, not one, where master boxers have not had an entry fee.
With that said, I can pay the fee but we still don’t have a doctor. At this point I have to be able to give those of you who made travel plans a chance to cancel and hopefully get your money back. If you have issues we’ll figure a way to make this right. All master boxers that were scheduled to compete will get a full refund just give me a few days to process them, I also have to try to recover the expenses made. I apologize for the bad news and disappointment this brings but feel there was nothing more that I could do.
