The main event bout for Friday night’s pro-am boxing card at the Sackville Arena has been cancelled.


The event will go ahead, but boxer Aaron Kinch will not compete due to an unexpected death in his family. Kinch, a Dartmouth native, was scheduled to fight Halifax’s Tyson Cave in the lightweight division.


Promoters said there’s no time to schedule a replacement match. The middleweight and heavyweight pro-am matches are still going ahead as planned. The new main event will be a heavyweight encounter between Eddie Dawson of Porter’s Lake and Tiny Brown, formerly from Halifax.
