Michael "Lefty" Brooks suffered an injury in training and has pulled out of his scheduled May 18 clash with Chazz McDowell. Brooks hopes he will be back in action by May.
Brooks wrote to McDowell on Facebook, "Chazz, I hope they get you someone else and you win. I would like to go through with this fight on a later date."
The 9-0-1 fighter later wrote a note of inspiration, "Back to the training, the focus never left. Bumps in the road get passed by moving forward or paving them flat! Everything happens for a reason and we control destiny, so let's get it."
