The British Boxing Board of Control, the body in charge of controlling boxing in the United Kingdom, has ensured that on February 1, boxing events in the country will be able to resume.

They have clarified that the total closure of British boxing during the month of January, which we echoed the other day in ESPABOX, does not respond to a capricious decision, but to the fact that the federation members, referees and judges themselves were decimated by the uncontrolled incidence of covid.

In addition, they clarify that they had no proof of galas in the first two weeks of the year, so the real damage is not very great when considering that they only cancel events scheduled between January 15 and 31.

Promoters such as MTK have already announced evenings for February, and only a government decree would prevent boxing from returning to normal in the second month of the year in British lands.
