Steve Geffrard is known for having sparred with the best boxers in the business. But on Saturday, Geffrard has the opportunity to fight for a world championship. On the fly, Geffrard agreed to step in as a replacement opponent for Callum Johnson. Johnson tested positive for COVID-19, ending his shot at an Online Boxing championship fight against Joe Smith Jr. Thus, with less than a week’s notice, Geffrard gets his opportunity in place of Johnson. Smith will make the first defense of his WBO light heavyweight championship on January 15 in an ESPN-televised main event from Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York.
