Sad news !!! Niclas R. Larsen has withdrawn himself from his upcoming mega-bout with Buakaw due to Niclas falling foul of a terrible skin infection. Niclas's statement below: "I hereby announce that my fight against buakaw to all-star fights is cancelled. Sunday the 15.4.18 I went to the hospital because I felt, my skin was burning, headdeche and had fever. At the simitvej srinakarin hospital they could conclude that I had a steph/strephocok bacteria on the skin. I had some big wounds on my neck, arm and body that needed to get treatment. They gave me strong antibiotic for 5 days and then it should be ok. Today I went back for a check up at the hospital but for my bad luck I had to stay on the medicine at least 5 more days, my wounds is looking better but they won't be healed until the 28.4.18 I would put my own and buakaw health in danger if I would still be fighting that night. I'm so sad about missing this big opportunity. This is a dream fight and I wanted this to happent for many years. I'm truly sorry to cancel the fight on such short notice I wish I could do something but I just can't !! Buakaw and all-star fight promotion I'm truly greatfull that you saw me as a rightfully opponent and I'm so sorry and embarrassed that I have to cancel this great opportunity. I wish of all of my heart that I'll get a chance to fight this legend someday and hope you will give me the chance again in the near future."
