Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

It’s now been announced by the WBO that they have taken the decision to postpone all of their sanctioned boxing matches through June. That means no WBO title fights or anything of the like until at least July. The sanctioning body has posted this message to their website.

“Amidst the current situation worldwide cause by Covid-19 the WBO has postponed all boxing events through June 2020. We will update accordingly.”

This move gives even more credence to those who believe that boxing in general really won’t get back up and running until at least mid-summer, and boy is that a bummer albeit completely understandable given the current climate surrounding Coronavirus. At this point, all we really can do is take the proper precautions and hope for the best.

In the meanwhile we’ll do our best to provide you all with the latest news and updates as the world attempts to get a handle on this mess.
