Lewis to battle Blaydes February 20th

The heavyweights were originally supposed to fight on November 28th. But, just one day out from the fight, Blaydes tested positive for COVID-19 and the bout was called off.

Now ESPN is reporting that according to sources, the fight has been rescheduled for February 20th. The location for the card has yet to be officially announced.
