Here is what he had to say:
“Everybody in that camp, most of them had COVID-19, the sparring partners. Everybody there was ill, some were in hospitals. He has, and it’s a pandemic, and people wouldn’t expect Tyson to fight with COVID-19. They think he’s somebody superhuman, and it doesn’t affect him, but they do affect him. It nearly put his poor brother in the royal infirmary.”
The fight has now been been rescheduled to take place on October 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
