Boxing News - - Amateurs -

THE next event for the Olympic squad will be the GB cham­pi­onships, which takes place in Sh­effield. Th­ese will take place at the English In­sti­tute of Sport on Thurs­day De­cem­ber 7.

It gives top in­ter­na­tion­als like Lisa White­side, a Euro­pean and World medal­list who takes over Ni­cola Adams’ fly­weight spot, a wel­come chance to box in the UK. For tick­ets see: http://www.tick­ets­di­rect.org.uk/gbchamps/en­try­form.aspx.

A dual match be­tween Bri­tain and China had been sched­uled to take place in Sh­effield on Novem­ber 7, but this had to be post­poned.

That was due to the Chi­nese Box­ing Fed­er­a­tion be­ing un­able to send their team for that date. GB Box­ing un­der­stands that this was due to in­ter­nal is­sues within the Chi­nese Fed­er­a­tion. They are try­ing to resched­ule the fix­ture.
