Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc. (CES) has released IWBF featherweight champion Missy "The Fury" Fiorentino from her promotional contract, effective immediately, due to detrimental behavior at last Friday night's "Hearts Of Fire" show in Providence, CES president Jimmy Burchfield announced today.
Fiorentino (15-1, 6 KOs) walked Mia St. John to the ring and stood in her corner before and after the St. John's title fight against Missy's CES stablemate Jaime Clampitt, who won a 10-round unanimous decision (100-90, 100-90, 99-91) for the vacant IWBF lightweight championship, which Fiorentino had relinquished.
"CES stands for teamwork, family and togetherness," Burchfield explained his decision to release Fiorentino. "That's what we are all about and anyone who isn't cannot be with us, regardless of the fighter's record and accomplishments. We acknowledged all of our fighters (in the audience) by introducing them in the ring, in between fights, as a sign of respect.
"Nobody could find Missy because she was in Mia's dressing room, which was the last place anybody from CES would have thought to look. I couldn't believe she was in the corner of her CES teammate's opponent. It was a bush league move that I will not tolerate by her or anybody else on Team CES."
