Two fights are cancelled on Williams-Robinson card

Williams vs Robinson event will still go ahead

Queensberry Promotions, in conjunction with the BBBofC, can confirm that two positive tests have been returned after the most recent batch of testing carried out by Prenetics.

The positive tests have come from the camps of boxer’s Jack Flatley and Dan Booth, although both Boxers tested negative themselves.

Consequently, the scheduled bout for the Commonwealth Super-Welterweight Championship between JJ Metcalf and Jack Flatley and the undercard bout between Micky Burke Jr and Dan Booth have now been cancelled in line with the protocol of the British Boxing Board of Control and the Promoter.

The rest of the show’s participants, who have all been isolating at a London base this week have tested negative and the show, being headlined by Liam Williams and Andrew Robinson for the British Middleweight Championship, will continue as planned.

A Queensberry spokesman said;  “Whilst it is unfortunate that two corner-men have tested positive it shows that the superb protocols and safety measures put in place for the sport works. These excellent measures have, of course, been carried out so to preserve the safety of everyone involved in the event and of course we wish those affected well.”

The Southampton snapper Ryan 'The Piranha' Garner (9-0) returns to business at super featherweight with a match against Birmingham's experienced Sean Davies (14-14). He will be joined on the card by his teammate on the South Coast, Mark Chamberlain (6-0), who takes a step-up fight against Shaun Cooper (10-1) from Willenhall.
