Welterweight contender Conor Benn has had to pull out of his fight against Adrian Granados on Saturday after testing positive for COVID-19, according to multiple reports.

Eddie Hearn, Benn’s promoter, said he will work on rescheduling the bout, which was set to take place at Fight Camp 2 in Brentwood, England.

The featherweight fight between Xu Can of China and England’s Leigh Wood will now be the main event on DAZN.

Benn, the 24-year-old son of former two-division champion Nigel Benn, would face arguably the biggest test of his career against Granados. The Southern Californian is a solid boxer with experience against elite opposition.
