On Tuesday, August 11, Yoel Romero’s name got omitted from the event, because of the reasons undisclosed. However, an injury might be a possible reason. The official announcement regarding Romero’s withdrawal is yet to be made, and this is just a result of the initial reports. (Source)
It was a huge match-up, one that is cancelled or delayed for a later date now. The encounter was the co-main event, and would have generated steam, since Romero, Ranked 5 would have entered with a three-match losing streak, where all the losses have come from the triad of Middleweight division, against Hill who has a winning momentum on his side.
