Elite Fight Night 20 has been postponed following complications with NSW Combat Sports Authority paperwork.
The event was scheduled to take place on November 15 at the St Mary’s Band Club in Sydney, but will now likely go ahead some time next year.
Below is a statement from the promoter regarding the situation.
Due to NSW combat sports laws in regards to issuing permits 21 days out from a show, EFN 20 has been postponed till further notice. It is very unfortunate for everyone involved.
The combat authority were notified of the date 6 weeks ago but failed to send out permit paperwork , but will not take any responsibility. As the promoter I should have put the request in writing and requesting a permit by phone does not count for anything. They require 21 days to organize 1 person to supervise the event, 9 days is not enough time. This rule was made by our politicians in 2008 who have never even been to a show let alone tried to promote one.
It is a joke! They asked me today why there are not many shows on anymore.
I am very sorry to all fighters , trainers and anyone who has helped out.
will notify everyone as soon as the new date is set. All tickets and tables will be refunded.
It’s unclear at this stage whether the original lineup, which was to feature Alifeleti ‘Tux’ Halaholo in the main event, will remain unchanged for the new date.
