WBN sent warning of a spate of potential cancellations to boxing events over the coming months and the British Board of Boxing control have sent a document to promoters, managers and event organizers.
In a document, which was obtained by World Boxing News, the BBBofC stated they are, ‘monitoring the situation regarding the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak closely’ as fears grow over the disease.
“Due to the fact that medical officers have obvious obligations to their health authorities, it will become difficult to appoint medical officers for any show,” confirmed the BBBofC.
“We will await any recommendations or restrictions in relation to all sporting events in the UK,” they concluded.
Las Vegas and New York are the latest US States to confirm cases.
