MONTRÉAL - The promoter of the GYM Group, the Montrealer Yvon Michel, and his partner Bob Arum, from Top Rank Inc from Las Vegas. were supposed to present a WBC and IBF light heavyweight (175 pounds) championship of the world March 28 th at the Videotron Centre in Québec City, between the Montrealer Russian Artur Beterbiev (15-0-0) (the champion) and the Chinese Fanlong Meng (15-0-0), but this event is officially postponed.

“Considering that we are not allowed to draw more than 250 spectators per event, as long that this coronavirus contamination will persist, we did not have any choice,” said Bernard Barré, the scout of the GYM Group. “In the circumstances, we were obliged to cancel the March 28th boxing show. The event should move in USA, but at this point, no site and no date have been decided. The promoters will discuss of the situation in the weeks to come, and we will see when this world championship bout will be organized.”
