A welterweight bout between Che Mills and Valentino Petrescu has been scrapped from Cage Warriors' return to Wales next month.
Mills (15-6) and Petrescu (12-3) were set to meet at Cage Warriors 59. But promotion officials on Friday that fight has been pulled from the card. First, Petrescu had to pull out of the fight, and Leeroy Barnes (12-11) was tapped to take his place. But when Mills, too, became ill, the fight had to be removed.
