Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett will not fight against Vincent “Joe Boxer” Valenzuela on tonight’s “Shamrock vs. Baroni” undercard but it wasn’t because of a lack of effort from the promoters.
Bennett was actually released from Marion County (Fla.) jail on Thursday morning and a flight was booked for him to arrive in San Jose in time for weigh-ins. However, he apparently hit traffic on the way to the airport and missed his flight.
“EliteXC, Scott Coker and Strikeforce almost pulled off a hat-trick but (Bennett) got stuck in traffic and missed his plane,” EliteXC’s Gary Shaw said during weigh-ins. “‘Krazy Horse’ said, though, that Edson Berto deserves praise for stepping up.”
Bennett is still expected to be in attendance for tonight’s fights.
