Like other promoters, Eddie Hearn has seen all of his scheduled events for March, April and May postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
And Hearn, like others, could see boxing first come back behind closed doors before moving forward to smaller venues.
On a worldwide scale, there are now over 1 million cases of coronavirus COVID-19.
At the moment, most countries are locked down - many of them until the end of May - where no large gatherings are permitted and there are numerous restrictions regarding travel and social distancing, where governments want their respective citizens to remain at home and stay at least six feet away from each other when it's necessary to leave the house.
Everyone would like to see boxing, and other sports, return at some point in June. But there is no telling if June is the end of the pandemic or if restrictions will continue and everything will get pushed back to July. There are already several big cards on the menu for July with tentative dates.
“The problem is nobody knows, but we all hope we can return to some kind of boxing in June. Whether that’s behind closed doors at first, or whether that’s back with small-hall shows then we hope we can get to the bigger shows before the end of June,” Hearn told Talk Sport.
“I know there’s a bigger picture going on but everyone in sport right now needs to be working on a solution. It’s going to be an horrifically messy time for sports and businesses when we do come out of the other side, because the world won’t be the same again.”
