The British Boxing Board of Control has officially confirmed that they have suspended all British boxing in January due to COVID.
The decision means Chris Eubanks Jr.’s fight against Liam Williams on January 29 will be rescheduled.
The fight was originally delayed by six weeks after Williams suffered a shoulder injury.
And the delay pushed back Eubank Jr.’s plans for a title fight against Gennady Golovkin even further.
The 32-year-old says that GGG wants to fight in England, and he insists that he will be able to sell a football stadium.
He told The Daily Mail, “He is a great champion who has been in my eyes for a long time and whom I would be proud to fight.
“He says he wants to fight again in England and that he and I will pack a football stadium.
“Unless Canelo lvarez wants to fight him again, he has no other option as good. That looks suspicious.”
The mild but easy-to-transmit Omicron has seen UK COVID cases rise to 180k a day.
But vaccines have played their part in keeping the most vulnerable people safe.
Health officials have repeatedly said that COVID booster jabs protect against Omicron and offer the best chance of surviving the pandemic.
Sun’s Jabs Army campaign is helping to get significant additional vaccines into the arms of Brits, especially for sporting events, removing the need for any new restrictions.
