An Iron Mike Productions-promoted card that was once expected to take place in Washington, D.C., on March 7 will not happen, according to company officials.

“The March 7th date was postponed indefinitely due to not having enough time to promote it properly,” Azim Spicer, chief operating officer for Iron Mike Productions, said via email. “We have a great relationship with Barry Hunter (from Headbangers gym) and look forward to bringing an event to the D.C. area in the near future.”

In late January, matchmaker Chris Middendorf said he was working on a card featuring local lightweight Anthony Peterson, returning former titleholder Joan Guzman, and touted prospect Erickson Lubin in separate bouts.

Peterson himself also indicated he would be fighting March 7, speaking in an interview conducted at the Jan. 25 card in which his brother, Lamont, defeated Dierry Jean. Anthony had initially been scheduled to fight on the undercard, but had pulled out in favor of a headline spot on the March 7 show.

Postcard-sized advertisements for the March 7 show were produced, featuring the Iron Mike Productions and Headbangers Promotions logos, and announcing a show featuring Peterson in the main event and Guzman in the co-feature.

Guzman’s “place on the show was in question from the moment it was announced,” according to a report by BoxingScene’s own Jake Donovan. The boxer’s representatives told Donovan that Guzman would not be fighting on the card, though his comeback will continue at a later date.

A spokesman for Peterson declined to comment.
