ESPN’s Doris Burke opens up about COVID-19 struggle, NBA’s resumption concerns

  ESPN’s Doris Burke opens up about COVID-19 struggle, NBA’s resumption concerns When asked about the challenges the NBA will face as it attempts to mount a comeback next month, Burke didn’t mince words.“The thing that I felt the most was fatigue and headache,” Burke said about having coronavirus. “So for a good stretch of the first two weeks of that, I was just thinking I had a bad flu, because my symptoms were not aligning with what was being told were the main symptoms — the shortness of breath, the pressure on the chest — I didn’t have those scary symptoms. So for a good stretch of time, I didn’t think I had it. But then I finally decided to get tested.

The heavyweight picture seems pretty clear.

Titleholders Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua have fights set with Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev, respectively, before the end of this year or early next year.

If they both win, the plan is for Fury to face Joshua in a huge all-British showdown next.

One man could stand in the way: Dillian Whyte, who will be favored to beat Alexander Povetkin next month. Whyte is the mandatory challenger to the title Fury holds. If he beats Povetkin, the Fury-Wilder winner can’t ignore him.

The Jamaican-born Londoner said emphatically that he will not accept money to step aside.
