(NOV 30) WBAN has received word from Valerie Mahfood, of Texas that she will not be on the Africa card, December 2nd.   This is not the only problem WBAN has been hearing about with this card.  More on that later...

Mahfood told WBAN, "I will not be fighting on the show in Africa on December 2, 2006. The promoter, or at least the man I've been speaking with, was not able to schedule a flight for both me and my corner person. He did manage to get my itinerary to me on Tuesday, the day before I was to fly out. When I asked about my corner's schedule, he said he had already purchased the ticket and had sent it to me. He said he would resend it and I waited for a few hours. I then called the airline reservation desk. Eventually, the man told me that my corner's itinerary had been researched, but never purchased. By that time, the schedule had expired. Nonetheless, additional seats were still available on the plane and could be purchased for around $2,400 USD.   I sent some e-mails to the promoter asking for the other ticket. My corner sent a few e-mails. No luck. We gave him as much time as possible to respond, but he never did. Three hours before I was to leave for the airport, we called off the wait. It simply was not feasible to think I would travel half-way around the world to fight for a world title without having a corner person.  I hate that I'm not going. I was really looking forward to the fight. You know, my motto is: "Have passport. Will travel." But, as the years go by, I'm learning to work with the things that are in my control and accept the things I can not change.  I could not control the fact that he would only purchase one ticket. I could, however, control my actions. I called the reservation desk again and canceled my ticket. They agreed to refund him all but a $200 service fee. I thought that wasn't too bad considering the amount of notice I was giving the airline.   I like to think the best of people. So, in my mind, I have rationalized the entire incident. I'm not angry, though having spent hundreds of dollars for phone calls and immunization shots, I probably have a right to be. I wish the girls who have already made it over there the best of luck. And, I wish the promoter a successful turn-out."
