All fans attending the event will be required to wear a mask or face covering, and tickets will be distributed in seat blocks called "pods" to maintain social distancing practices between groups.

The event will be Spence's first time in the ring since he survived a car crash in Dallas last October.

According to police, the welterweight champion and former U.S. Olympian was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center with injuries that were considered serious but not life-threatening.

After being released from the hospital, Spence was charged with DWI, misdemeanor B. There were no other criminal charges.
