Philadelphia, PA - The NABO Light Heavyweight title fight between champion Roy Jones Jr. and Manny Siaca scheduled for December 9 at the Liacouras Center has been cancelled.
Contractual issues between the fighters and the promoter Global Spectrum led to the cancellation.
'It is unfortunate for the boxing fans of Philadelphia that this significant event has been called off due to contractual issues for the fight,' said Global Spectrum Chief Operating Officer John Page.
The 37-year-old Jones (50-4-0, 38 KOs) won the title last July with a decision over Prince Badi Ajamu in Boise, Idaho.
Siaca, who is currently ranked number two by the WBA in the Light Heavyweight division, has compiled a record of 2-1-0 with two KO's since moving up to the Light Heavyweight division in 2005.
