Shine Fights appears ready to give it another shot as FiveOuncesofPain.com recently learned from sources close to the promotion that a September 10 date is currently being targeted for a pay-per-view date.
Shine Fights previous event, slated for May 15, had been canceled after North Carolina Athletic Commission officials determined financial issues could not be resolved in time for the event to go on as planned.
5 Oz. was also informed that the event is likely to take place from The Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.
A single-evening lightweight tournament is currently being targeted for the event with a grand prize of $50,000. Lightweights reportedly being considered for the tournament include:

The promotion is currently seeking approval for its one night tournament but approval is anticipated. Sources close to Shine are claiming the event will be televised on “pay-per-view” but sources close to 5 Oz. have indicated that the event will be available on Internet PPV as opposed to televised PPV.
