Jose Ramirez’s WBC/WBO junior welterweight world title defense against former world champion Viktor “The Iceman” Postol has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak in China. Ramirez and Postol were scheduled to square off Saturday February 1st live on ESPN from Mission Hills Haikou in Hainan, China.
Ramirez-Postol bout will be contested at a date and venue to be determined.
“The health and safety of our fighters and everyone working on the event is the most important thing,” said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. “We hope the situation is brought under control soon. We look forward to staging events at Mission Hills Haikou in the very near future.”
