A June 27 ShoXC event that first reported in May has been postponed.

The outdoor event had been scheduled for the Sycuan Casino and Resort near San Diego and was expected to feature the promotional debut of highly touted Judoka Hector Lombard.

However, according to our friends at, EliteXC officials had difficulty securing the venue, but they are looking to reschedule the event for a later date.

The cancellation was first reported by Mauro Ranallo on Fight Network Radio.

The event, which was set to air on Showtime, was also supposed to feature a King of the Cage middleweight fight between title-holder Keith Berry and Reggie Orr. Cyrille Diabate had also been slated to take on Jaime Fletcher.

ShoXC, which launched in 2007, is EliteXC's smaller event circuit that's designed to showcase prospects and big-show newcomers. Six of the events have been held to date and have featured fighters such as Eddie Alvarez, current EliteXC lightweight champ KJ Noons, and EliteXC-CBS main-card participant Jon Murphy.
