In a Twitter post, McGregor had posted a photo with his mother Margaret that he said was from one of his "World title wins". Whether or not the tweet was meant for Chimaev, however, it does not mean that the fight will come to fruition.

The president attended a roundtable at the American Red Cross headquarters on Thursday accompanied by coronavirus experts including National Institutes of Health leaders Francis Collins and Anthony Fauci, White House coronavirus coordinator Deborah Birx, and Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn to discuss the treatment. Malcolm Perry and second-year linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel boarded OneBlood's Big Red Bus on Thursday to donate their convalescent plasma. The organization is also testing all blood donations for the COVID-19 antibodies, and those who test positive for the antibody will be eligible to become COVID-19 convalescent plasma donors.

Trump toured the Red Cross headquarters ahead of the roundtable, wearing a mask as he did so. Those who have recovered and are willing to donate can visit www.oneblood.org, register, and make an appointment to be a convalescent plasma donor.

There have been 4.4 million cases of coronavirus in the United States, the most reported cases of any country in the world, and more than 150,000 people in the country have died from the virus.
