By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Eddie Hearn has hinted that some fans may be able to attend Anthony Joshua’s huge world title defence against Kubrat Pulev on December 12.
Originally, AJ’s promoter had planned for 1000 fans to attend the bout inside the O2 Arena but the second coronavirus lockdown cast doubt over those plans.
The location is now set to be at the SSE Arena in London but there remains some optimism that some supporters will be allowed in.
Hearn was asked on Twitter on Monday: ‘Does today’s news mean we’ll have a few fans attending the AJ Pulev fight?
He responded: ‘Detailed meetings taking place and we will make an announcement in due course (thumbs up emoji).’
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Boris Johnson had announced Gyms and non-essential shops in all parts of England will be allowed to reopen when lockdown ends next month.
Spectators will be allowed to return to some sporting events when the lockdown ends on December 2.
