The British Boxing Board of Control confirmed returning of the boxing sports on Monday, January 11 2021.

"The British Boxing Board of Control will be resuming boxing tournaments under its jurisdiction in the middle of February, " a statement from the UK's Boxing Board of Control read.

Earlier, the organisation which controls the professional boxing in the United Kingdom shut down all its event in January due to the threatening second wave of the COVID-19 infection.

Boxing fans will be happy to see this European title defending fight hold soon when boxing return in February even though the fight's actual date has not been rescheduled.
