Brandon Figueroa positive for COVID, fight with Stephen Fulton Jr postponed

And down goes another September main event.

Brandon Figueroa has tested positive for COVID, postponing his September 18th 122 lb unification match with Stephen Fulton Jr, which was set to headline on Showtime:

Neither PBC nor Showtime have announced a new date, making it unclear whether the fight will actually happen in October. We’ve seen our share of fast turnarounds, like Kenshiro Teraji vs. Masamichi Yabuki, so it’s certainly possible.

Figueroa (22-0-1, 17 KO) scored a career-best win in May by stopping Luis Nery with a vicious body shot, claiming his ninth knockout victory in his last 10 fights in the process. He and the ultra-slick Fulton (19-0, 8 KO) figured to put on a hell of a show and establish the winner as an unquestionable top-two fighter at the weight, so let’s hope they manage to put the fight back together.
