TitanFighting.com has issued the following press release:

Kansas City, KS – The Titan Fighting Championship (www.TitanFighting.com) on Wednesday announced its finalized card for next Friday’s (March 25) seven-bout lineup to air live nationally on HDNet (www.HD.net).

The show, branded Titan Fighting Championship 17, will emanate from the historic Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas and will feature seven pro fights on the HDNet telecast, which will begin at 10 p.m. ET (the night’s undercard will begin at 7 p.m. CT).

The finalized lineup just announced by Titan Fighting includes a late change to the night’s main event, which will feature former WWEsuperstar Bobby Lashley. Kansas City-based heavyweight James Jack (6-2) had been scheduled to fight Lashley but has been pulled from the show and replaced by John Ott (9-7).

Jack’s departure from the card comes under questionable circumstances.

"We had an agreement with Jack to fight Lashley but he’s essentially gone MIA. James missed several scheduled media shoots and no longer was returning our calls," said Titan Fighting CEO Joe Kelly. "It became abundantly clear that James had no intention of showing up to fight Bobby on March 25 so we had to make a change." You can read more if you CLICK HERE.
