Boxing: Mayer positive for COVID-19, will miss Tuesday’s fight

Boxer Mikaela Mayer tested positive for the coronavirus and will miss her scheduled junior lightweight bout on Tuesday against Helen Joseph. The 10-round bout was scheduled to be one of the featured fights on the Top Rank card at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Mayer, who turns 30 next month, made the announcement on social media on Sunday and called her positive test “a complete surprise” since she believed she was taking all required precautions to stay safe from COVID-19.
