Denham announced the news on his Facebook account moments ago: "Guys chance of plan AND opponent!! Still fighting for the interim world title.. But ruben wolf has cocked as his coach can't fly or something, so now am fighting Stuart Austin, which is a harder fight in my eyes So still for the title just different opponent thanks to Stuart for stepping up and saving the fight Cheers pal" MMAjr.co just had a chance to speak to Denham (7-7 MMA, 2-2 BAMMA) and he told us that one of Ruben Wolf's coaches had a problem with his passport and could not board the plane, therefore, Wolf pulled out of the fight. The fight was not cancelled, though, as Stuart Austin (9-2 MMA, 1-1 BAMMA) volunteered to step in. Austin was originally set to fight Paul Taylor on the undercard but he will now be the opening fight on the main card and will be fighting for the Interim BAMMA Heavyweight Title. MMAjr.co has contacted Austin but we have had no reply as of yet. --- Updates to follow. --- UPDATE: MMAjr.co have contacted Ruben Wolf, "The Viking" was insistent that he didn't pull from the fight and has told us to contact Heavy Duty Management, we are currently in process of contacting them.
