It has been announced that the WBC/WBO Jr. Welterweight world championship bout between champion Jose Ramirez and former WBC Jr. Welterweight world champion Viktor Postol, which was originally scheduled for February 1st in Haikou, China , will now take place on May 9th at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA.
The bout, which will headline a nationally televised Boxing card in the United States broadcast by ESPN, was postponed in January due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak that has affected several countries worldwide. Similar to that postponement, several scheduled Boxing cards from China, to Italy, to Japan have all been cancelled or postponed as countries around the world look to combat the virus. For the moment, no scheduled Boxing or other sporting events have been compromised here in the United States due to the ongoing outbreak.
We will keep readers updated as to any possible Boxing-related postponements, cancellations, or rescheduling as details become available.
