Golden Boy Promotions has announced that the much anticipated December 5 lightweight showdown between Ryan “Kingry” Garcia and Luke Campbell has been postponed after Campbell tested positive test for COVID-19. The new date will be announced shortly.
Campbell’s promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed it on social media. “Unfortunately Luke Campbell tested positive for Covid 19.
