The Ryan Garcia vs Avery Sparrow fight due to take place at the Dignity Health Sports Park, in Carson, California has been cancelled due to Sparrow having been arrested and detained by US Marshalls. This will be a big loss to Golden Boy Promotions who have Jaime Munguia headlining the card and wanted a co-feature on the bill that would draw the Mexican fans on Mexican Independence weekend.

Philidelphia's Sparrow failed to show up for the weigh-In and when word broke that he would not be at liberty to take his place against Garcia (18-0-0, 15 Ko's), the fight was cancelled.

Garcia of Los Angeles, California will probably fight on the November 2nd Canelo vs Kovalev bill.
