The event was originally meant to be headlined by national heavyweight champion Justis Huni but Huni will not be headlining the card due to injury.
Huni was due to defend his title against veteran James Porter but a concussion caused the fight to be scratched. The concussion was caused by Huni hitting his head while wrestling with a friend.
