Eddie Hearn leaves Matchroom bubble after testing positive for coronavirus

EDDIE HEARN has tested positive for coronavirus.

The Matchroom promoter revealed he has left the Fight Camp bubble to protect the boxers after his result.

He tweeted: "Gutted to just find out I tested positive for Covid-19 today and have to leave the bubble immediately.

"Thankfully all other tests were negative. Heading home to rest – catch up tomorrow".

Hearn was busy preparing for the Matchroom show this weekend at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.

It is being headlined by rising star Joshua Buatsi, who is hotly tipped to become a future world champion.

He will fight Marko Calic for the WBA International light-heavyweight title.

Hearn, like all his fighters, is tested regularly for Covid-19. This positive test came as he was entering the 'bubble' of all those involved in fight night.

But thankfully the 41-year-old has revealed that he is the only person to have tested positive for the virus.
