A planned “Master’s Superfight” between Gary Goodridge and Eric “Butterbean” Esch scheduled for YAMMA Pit Fighting’s inaugural show on April 11 in Atlanta City, N.J. is the latest bout on the show to be altered.
Goodridge was knocked out in the second round against Mu Bae Choi in Seoul, South Korea on March 30. When speaking with the New Jersey Athletic Control Board, FiveOuncesOfPain.com (www.FiveOuncesOfPain.com) was informed that Goodridge will not be approved for the fight vs. Esch due to concerns over health and safety.
The NJACB also informed this site yesterday that in spite of YAMMA’s public announcement, a match between Oleg Taktarov and Mark Kerr that is being advertised by the promotion has not been approved. Kerr is still under suspension in the state of Connecticut and will not be approved until he’s been reinstated.
