Al Haymon is not taking any risks as a result fo the coronavirus pandemic. It was announced that all Premier Boxing Champions events taking place between March and April have been postponed.
“The health and safety of the boxers, fans and those working the events are of utmost importance to us,” said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. “We are all disappointed and as we get more information we will address future events.”
All ticket orders can be refunded through the original point of purchase. Ticketmaster orders will be refunded automatically.
One fight (of several) was already postponed in James Kirkland v. Marcos Hernandez, scheduled for March 14 from inside the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland.
