California clears boxing, MMA for competition


Boxing and mixed martial arts competition may resume in California after the state athletic commission approved new safety regulations for the coronavirus pandemic.

The commission will require a “quarantine bubble” around participants in every event, including referees and judges. The events also must be held without fans.

Golden Boy Promotions plans to stage a boxing show Friday night in Indio as the first event since the end of the combat sports suspension. Vergil Ortiz Jr. (15-0, 15 KOs) will defend his minor welterweight title against Samuel Vargas (31-5-2, 14 KOs) in the main event.
