Jeff Horn is the next boxer along with Tim Tszyu to have their fight rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Matt Rose, the co-promoter released the news that the anticipated super welterweight bout originally scheduled on April 22 will not pushed through.

The cancellation added to the chaos the sporting world is experiencing at the moment due to the outbreak.
