Boxing is Back

There you have it, they are all of the shows that we currently have lined up between now and October! There’s a good chance that more dates and shows will be added, providing that COVID-19 is kept under control.

However, we must also unfortunately be aware that at any moment these shows could be cancelled or changed, due to a worsening of the pandemic or due to fighters/trainers testing positive for coronavirus…

We hope for the best and can’t wait to see some more live boxing back on our screens!
