Kermit Cintron fight off; opponent is a no-show

Tonight’s scheduled main event at The Riveredge Restaurant in Reading, PA between Kermit Cintron and Josue Obando is off due to Obando failing to show up. Obando never stepped on the plane from Mexico, and therefore the fight was scrapped.

“We have had a signed contract for six-weeks, and the kid never showed up,” said Cintron’s promoter Marshall Kauffman of King’s Promotions. “Kermit worked very hard to weigh-in at 168.2 pounds. Kermit will get in the mix as he defeated Alfredo Angulo several years ago, and he just got a big win over Peter Quillin, so Kermit will be looking to fight anyone at 168 pounds.”

The pro-am card promoted by My Time Promotions in association with King’s Promotions will still go on and will feature two professional and 10 amateur fights beginning at 6 PM ET.

  • Maybe the no-show was actually doing Cintron a favor. What is the point in him fighting now anyway? Money? Bored? Missing being in the spotlight?

  • This is not the first time Obando has done this. He didn’t show up for a fight for me back in 2018. He is a classless fighter who doesn’t even have the courtesy to communicate with you. He should be suspended indefinitely.
