The fight between Liam Smith and Jessie Vargas that was scheduled for February 5 has been postponed due to Vargas’ illness with Covid-19. It is not yet known when the event will be rescheduled, nor if there will be any major changes.
Is the fight in danger?
According to the latest posts by both fighters, everything indicates that the fight will be rescheduled, and considering that it is a positive for Covid-19, it is very likely that it will be scheduled 3 or more weeks down the road.
Do you think this mishap will cause Jessie Vargas not to arrive in the best conditions for the fight? At first, it seemed to be a pretty even fight due to the good level of both boxers, however, Jessie Vargas was already coming after an inactivity of almost 2 years, and now sick with Covid-19, which undoubtedly will put him as the underdog for this fight.
