Top Rank, led by Bob Arum, will present an attractive card that will mark boxing’s return to Las Vegas breaking the cycle, since the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic paralyzed the sport.
With a considerable investment in Covid-19 screening and with all available safety and health measures, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas will open its doors to boxing again.
Top of the bill is undefeated North American Shakur Stevenson (13-0-0, 7 Ko’s) facing Puerto Rican Félix Caraballo (13-1-2, 9 Ko’s) in a 10-round fight. Although the card will be behind closed doors, it will have a television broadcast on ESPN and the Space channel, so it is expected to have a huge audience.
The World Boxing Council congratulates Top Rank for the great and meticulous work they have undertaken, in making this strong boxing comeback.
