Boxer Oscar De La Hoya was hospitalized with Covid-19 on Friday despite being fully vaccinated.
De La Hoya, 48, posted a video of himself in the hospital and announced he was not going to be able to fight next weekend.
Oscar De La Hoya was scheduled to fight UFC champ Vitor Belfort in a “comebacK” fight next Saturday.
Evander Holyfield, 58, will replace De La Hoya, MMA Junkie reported.
“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.
