Promoter Matchroom Boxing will return this weekend with its next boxing event after a month of downtime, but alas, the event cannot be attended by head organizer Eddie Hearn, who recently tested positive for COVID-19.
“Today I discovered that I tested positive for COVID-19, and now I have to urgently leave the event venue,” Hearn said via social media. “Fortunately, all other tests were negative. I’m going home to rest, I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Recall that this boxing show will lead the light heavyweight fight between Olympic bronze medalist Joshua Buatsi (12-0, 10 KOs) and Croatian Marco Kalic (11-0, 6 KOs), who will challenge one of the regional titles. The very same event will take place this Sunday in the city of Milton Keynes at Marshall Arena.
