After a unanimous vote by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) on Wednesday, the path has officially been cleared for the sport of Boxing to begin resuming as the commission approved two Boxing cards that will take place on June 9th and June 11th. The cards, which take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, will be promoted by Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum's Top Rank Inc. This will be the first Boxing events to take place in the United States since mid-March due to the Covid-19 epidemic. While the Covid-19 crisis remains ongoing, these two cards represent the initial steps to resume normal activity for the sport.
With Covid-19 still the central focus of the world, strict safety and testing protocols must be followed according to the NSAC. As more information becomes available regarding these two Boxing events, which will be closed to the public and televised in the United States by ESPN and it's digital subscription-based streaming network ESPN+, we will update readers on those developments and provide coverage of these events as they take place. Stay tuned.
