Czech boxer, Fabiana Bytyqi (16-0-1, 4KOs), is currently recovering from Coronavirus.
The President of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Sulaimán, sent their best wishes for the prompt and full recovery, who is the first world champion diagnosed with covid-19 Coronavirus so far.
'Angel Fist' made history by becoming the first boxer from the Czech Republic to win a major world title with a victory over Denise Castle in September 2018.
On November 30th, the 24-year-old defeated Mexican Ana Arrazola via UD, successfully defending her championship for the second time. The young champion originally began karate at the age of four, later moving on to kickboxing, Muay Thai, then finally settling at boxing where she conquered the world in her 15th fight.
Boxing News Now would like to send their best wishes to Fabiana for a full and speedy recovery.
Brits Nigel Benn and Anthony Yarde both lost family members this week, with two-weight world champion Benn's brother Mark losing his battle with the virus, and world title contender Yarde sadly lost his father and grandmother in the same week.
