An ice storm on Friday knocked out Top Rank's nationally televised "Solo Boxeo Tecate" card on UniMas, which was scheduled for Saturday night at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla.

The card was due to be headlined by the rematch between featherweights Daniel Diaz of Nicaragua and Robert Marroquin of Dallas, with middleweight Gilberto Ramirez against Grady Brewer, a former winner of "The Contender" reality series, in the co-feature.

Top Rank announced that card would be rescheduled in early 2014.

A former bantamweight title challenger, Diaz (20-5-1, 14 KOs), 33, scored an upset 10-round split decision against former junior featherweight title challenger Marroquin (23-3, 16 KOs), 24, on June 29. Neither man had boxed since while the rematch was put together.
