The Boxer, Oscar De La Hoya, is in the hospital due to coronavirus complications even though he is fully vaccinated. This Friday, he was hospitalized. At the age of 48, he shared a video in the hospital canceling the match scheduled for the upcoming weekend.
His opponent would have been the UFC champ, Vitor Belfort, in a comeback fight.

So, instead of De La Hoya, Evander Holyfield (58) will fight, reported MMA Junkie.
“Wanted you to hear directly from me that despite being fully vaccinated, I have contracted Covid and am not going to be able to fight next weekend. Preparing for this comeback has been everything to me over the last months, & I want to thank everyone for their tremendous support.” De La Hoya said.
“What are the chances of me getting Covid? I’ve been taking care of myself, and this really really really kicked my ass,” the boxer said.

I am currently in the hospital getting treatment and am confident I will be back in the ring before the year is up. God bless everyone and stay safe.
