The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has cancelled nearly every boxing event, around the world, for March and April. And numerous events are starting to get postponed in the month of May.
Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom has been forced to cancel several planned events in multiple countries.
At the moment there is no concrete timeline on when live events with mass gatherings will be allowed to move forward. There are different restrictions from country to country.
The removal of live events could eventually become a monetary death sentence to some promoters, who depend on the money generated from live gates and broadcast rights.
When live sporting events are finally given the green light to resume, Hearn is not sure that every promoter will be able to survive the downtime.
'"If you don't run a sustainable business very quickly this is going to unfold on you like a ton of bricks," Hearn told BBC Radio.
"Things have gathered momentum and it's been changing to worrying about your business to worrying about your family - that's when the other stuff plays second fiddle. You realise the severity of this and it's about life and death rather than just running a business.
"It's heartbreaking to see every sport suffer and some sports will never recover, some businesses will never recover but more importantly some people will never recover. When that's an issue everything stops and everything becomes insignificant. We will beat this, we must do as we're told but there will still be a future for this country, this sport and this economy."
