Boxing events banned in the UK once again

The British Boxing Board of Control released the following statment on January 3:

"Following the increase in Covid-19 cases in the United Kingdom and the effects such increases has on the NHS and the work of the Board Medical Officers, it has been decided that no tournaments under the jurisdiction of the British Boxing Board of Control will take place in January 2021.

A further review by the Board’s Medical Panel and Stewards will take place later in January in relation to tournaments from February onwards."

It means that the scheduled European bantamweight title clash between challenger Lee McGregor and champion Karim Guerfi has now been cancelled.
