Legendary Boxer Roberto Duran Hospitalized After Positive Coronavirus Test

Four-division boxing world champion Roberto Duran has been hospitalized in Panama City, Panama, after testing positive for COVID-19, per ESPN.

The 69-year-old Duran, who was hospitalized after suffering a viral infection, does not have "symptoms beyond something similar to a cold," per his son Robin's Instagram post.

The boxing legend went to seek treatment due to his age and because "he has a lung that does not work 100 percent due to an accident he suffered in 2001 in Argentina," per Robin Duran's post.

Duran, who began his professional boxing career when he was just 16 years old, went 103-16 during a career that spanned from 1968-2001.
