Leading boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has tested positive for coronavirus, reports BBC.
He said he has now left the secure bubble before Joshua Buatsi’s bout with Marko Calic for the WBA international light heavyweight title on Sunday.
Matchroom boss Hearn said he was the only person to test positive in the wider camp building up to the fight in Milton Keynes.
“Gutted to just find out I tested positive,” Hearn posted on Twitter.
“Thankfully all other tests were negative. Heading home to rest.”
