DESTIN, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 5, 2021 / Kenny "The Boss" Cross has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming Xtreme Fighting Championships Lightweight Tournament Semifinal bout against Tom O'Connor.

A winner of six straight, Cross is regarded as one of the XFC's most exciting and dangerous fighters after scoring an impressive KO over Jarel Askew at XFC 43 on NBC Sports Network in November. XFC President Myron Molotky wishes Cross well in his recovery and tells fans that a new opponent for O'Connor should officially be announced next week: "First and foremost, the whole XFC family wishes Kenny a quick and complete recovery. The Hexagon is waiting for this young stud when he's back to 100-percent, and we know he's going to come back stronger than ever. That being said, our matchmakers have done an excellent job in securing several terrific new contenders for this opening in the XFC's Lightweight Tournament, and we can't wait to let our fans know which athlete will be awarded this opportunity."
