Multiple sources speaking on the condition of anonymity have informed FiveOuncesOfPain.com that Chris Horodecki has failed his licensing examination with the California State Athletic Commission and has been removed from the card for Affliction’s “Day of Reckoning” event on Saturday.
A source to the fight indicated that Horodecki is off the card after failing a neurological examination. His trainer, Shawn Tompkins, contacted Five Ounces of Pain and stated that Horodecki originally underwent a series of medical exams in Las Vegas but that several items on his medical papers needed to be completed.
An appointment in the Los Angeles area was made in order to complete Horodecki’s forms and Tompkins said the exam went well until Horodecki was administered a pressure test. A doctor determined that Horodecki possessed less than 15% strength in his right arm and that he is likely to be suffering from a bulging disk in his neck. As such, Horodecki could not be licensed for Saturday’s fight vs. Dan Lauzon and he will recuperate up until it is determined that he is medically cleared to resume fighting.
An immediate replacement to face Lauzon has not been named.
