Promoter Bob Arum recently said that he is looking into possibly trying to schedule boxing events in Florida this summer, and will be looking to use the WWE’s facilities to do it, according to a report from ESPN.
After Governor Ron DeSantis deemed WWE an essential business in Florida, it seems as if other sports are looking to begin resuming in the state, including boxing and MMA. Arum has said that he will reach out to WWE to see if it’s possible. “It’s very, very interesting, and we’re going to be in touch with them. There’s a possibility to use their facility to maybe do events without a crowd,” he said.
