Source: Patrick Freitas - Icon Sport Promoter
June 18, 2007 Honolulu, HI. The June 30th Icon Sport event, “FEARLESS” has been rescheduled due to a separated shoulder injury incurred by Robbie Lawler while training. Lawler expressed an interest to compete in the event regardless of his shoulder injury, but doctors advised that he take 4 to 6 weeks to heal appropriately.
Icon Sport: FEARLESS will immediately be reset for September 15, just twelve weeks after the original date.
Upon hearing news of the event’s delay, UFC star and new Icon Martial Arts and Fitness Center instructor Chris Leben volunteered to help prepare Lawler’s “underdog” Hawaiian opponent, Kala Kolohe Hose:
“The show’s delay just gives me more time to get Kala Kolohe ready for Robbie. I know how he (Lawler) fights. I understand his game. Kala Kolohe will be ready.”
“It’s heartbreaking that we won’t meet on June 30th. But I want Robbie to take all the time he needs to heal. I want him healthy when I beat him. I don’t want any excuses.”
Fans who have already purchased tickets to the June 30th event may use these same tickets for entry into the September 15 rescheduled date. Any refunds must to be done at point of sale. Online sales will be refunded at www.ticketmaster.com. The Blaisdell Box Office should be ready to process refunds by Friday, June 22nd.
