Bob Arum: Boxing promoter criticizes Dana White, UFC for return amid coronavirus

Boxing promoter Bob Arum does not agree with the timing of UFC’s return amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

UFC president Dana White announced that three events are scheduled for the month of May without fans in attendance after the coronavirus pandemic halted all fights. UFC 249, which was originally scheduled for April 18, will be the first event held after the hiatus on May 9 in Jacksonville, Fla. 

As UFC is returning to action while other sports remain halted, Arum expressed his concern for the health and safety of those involved in running the fights.
