EliteXC Updates; Kimbo Slice vs Bo Cantrell
EliteXC held a conference call yesterday to promote their next event on Nov. 10 in Corpus Christi, Texas. The card is scheduled to be televised by Showtime at 10 p.m. ET.
Gary Shaw clearly defined what weight classes the EliteXC would have; EliteXC will have divisions at 140 lbs., 150 lbs., 160 lbs., 170 lbs., 185 lbs., light heavyweight (186-205), heavyweight (206-265), and a super heavyweight (265-plus). The 160 Lb. division will be known as their Lightweight division.
Mike Bourke was scheduled to fight Kimbo Slice but had to drop out due to injury at the November 10th event. This is to be Kimbo's debut with the promotion. Shaw also confirmed Bo Cantrell, who lost last Saturday to Brad Imes in a King of the Cage show via gogoplata, has been signed as a replacement to fight Slice.
