South Florida Mayors’ MMA Fight Called Off After Pizzi’s Arrest
The charity fight between former Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi and Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez has been called off due to Pizzi’s arrest Tuesday.
Pizzi was arrested Tuesday morning on bribery charges stemming from an FBI sting investigation, along with Sweetwater Mayor Manuel "Manny" Maroño.
Hernandez called the arrests “a very unfortunate event for not only Miami Lakes and Sweetwater, but all of South Florida.”
He is also disappointed that he won’t be able to duke it out with Pizzi in the octagon.
