Word is now getting out that another victim has been chosen by Covid-19. Of course, Tyson Fury also contracted the illness from his camp first and then Tyson made it a point that he would start cutting down the size of his team as some were let go. It looks like others should follow this method. Kamaru Usman To Leave UFC For Huge Fight.
Eddie Hearn says he now believes that Tyson Fury DID recently have COVID-19 while training for his now postponed July 24th fight against Devontay Wilder as it seems more valid than ever. Never one to back down and not totally talk the talk, Tyson Fury then produced a doctor’s note to prove to his fans that he does have Covid-19 which originally canceled his fight against Deontay Wilder.
That said, sadly, a few days ago, Hearn’s fighter Conor Benn tested positive for COVID-19 as well. He’s getting the same reaction from some fans, who think he’s faking to get out of a possible loss to Adrian Granados.
This has changed the tune of Hearn who now is okay with saying that yes, Tyson Fury, most likely does have Covid-19. We will have to see if more fighters continue to catch this illness as cases are, once again, ramping up.
