COVID-19 has made everybody’s life worrisome since the day it emerged. Many of the sporting stars, celebrities, and some other famous faces have all been caught in the hands of this virus lately. Recently, Hasim Rahman, one of our favorite wrestling stars, tested positive for COVID-19. Who is he and what’s going to happen to the war right now? Let’s take a look at the problem.
Hasim Rahman tested positive for COVID-19
On Friday, when the son of the former heavyweight champion tested positive for COVID-19, MMA fighter and professional boxer Rashad Coulter had his heavyweight fight against Hasim Rahman Jr.
was canceled. On the undercard tilt Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the Mike Tyson versus Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match will have one less professional boxing match.
Coulter (4-0, 3 KOs in boxing, 9-5 in MMA) arrived and soon heard from the press that the fight had been canceled.
This week, Rahman Jr. (9-0, 4 KOs) was a late substitute for Coulter’s special opponent, Vidal Riley. Coulter tips the scales at 211.2 pounds in a procedural move. It was later announced that Coulter would get his tote even now by Jimmy Burchfield Jr., COO of CES, the limited time company concerned with the Tyson versus Jones occasion.
Just three days ago, Rahman Jr. had been found to be negative for COVID-19, and he was snake-nibbled by the fight week infection, an occurrence that had become incredibly common in the pandemic. Given all this untimely news, it was very difficult to find an opponent for the match, so the right thing to do was to postpone the match.
