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.
