The Fight Network is reporting that Wagnney Fabiano will no longer be facing Chris “The Polish Hammer” Horodecki at the IFL Grand Prix Finals on Dec. 29 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. Chris Horodecki will now be facing Shad Lierley Dec. 29 for the IFL lightweight title.
According to the report, Fabiano will be making the drop to 145 lbs. and will be fighting for the IFL featherweight belt Dec. 29.
“We were ready to face Wagnney Fabiano in the final,” Tompkins said. “That’s being changed. Shad Lierley, who Horodecki fought before [in what was] probably one of the most exciting fights in the IFL, will be put into the Grand Prix spot against Chris.”
“I believe the IFL, in that show, is going to start a 145-pound division, and Wagnney Fabiano will be fighting for a 145-pound title,” Tompkins said. “We’re big fans of Wagnney Fabiano. Obviously, he’s waved the Canadian flag for [the Toronto Dragons]. We hope he becomes the 145-pound champion.”
