British Boxing Board of Control extend ban due to COVID-19 pandemic

Previously, the BBBofC banned all boxing events during MArch with a review to take place in April: "With regard to the above and the statement made by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson, all public tournaments under the jurisdiction of the British Boxing Board of Control are unfortunately cancelled. Further consideration of the matter will take place at the beginning of April."

But today, the Board released a statement extending that ban for a further month: "Following further Government and Medical Authorities advice, the British Boxing Board of Control have decided that the suspension of boxing tournaments under the BBBofC jurisdiction remains in place until end of April when further consideration will be given.

We will continue to follow Government and Medical Authorities advice and keep the situation under review.

The BBBofC would like to emphasise our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19."
