Affliction’s “Day of Reckoning,” is on hold.
The clothing company turned fight promoter’s second pay per view event, scheduled for Oct. 11 at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, has been postponed until Jan. 17.
According to an Affliction representative MMAWeekly.com spoke to, the event will now take place in Anaheim, Calif. at the Honda Center, where Affliction’s first show, “Banned,” was held on July 19.
Sources close to the venue in Las Vegas say that ticket sales were abysmally slow for the event, which is believed to have contributed to the event’s postponement.
A formal statement from Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio is forthcoming.
