It has been announced that due to the ongoing global COVID-19 epidemic the scheduled December 29th Middleweight world championship unification bout between IBF/IBO Middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin and WBA Middleweight world champion, which was scheduled to take place at the Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo, Japan has been postponed. The postponement of the bout, which is due to be broadcast globally by digital subscription sports streaming network DAZN comes as a result of the Japanese government imposing travel restrictions to the country due to the recently discovered Omnicron variant of the COVID-19 virus.
As of this writing, there is no word on a rescheduled date or a potential change in venue for the bout once rescheduled. We will keep readers updated on developments as they become available. Stay tuned.
