Due to a heart attack suffered by a major backer from Anne Arundel County two weeks ago, promoter Max Kisner has canceled his "comeback" Classic Boxing Entertainment Show scheduled for Sept. 26 at LaFontaine Bleu in Glen Burnie.
"Everything was falling into place and ticket sales were moving. Things were looking up -- then this," said Kisner, referring to his latest stroke of bad luck.
Kisner's backer was advised by his physician not to get involved in any business ventures and to rest.
"With the loss of him, I absolutely have no resources to put on a show," said Kisner, who rejuvenated pro boxing in the metro area three years ago only to have his unique dinner/boxing show concept financially ruin him.
