Police shut down Junior amateur championships

England Boxing Junior championships
But Birtley ABC make sure the Northern semi-finals of the England Boxing Junior championships go ahead

THE police had forced the cancellation of various stages of the England Boxing Junior championships, based on a serious threat, including “a threat to life”. Even if England Boxing had gone ahead with certain events in the tournament it was made clear that the police would go to court to stop them.

However the Northern Area semi-finals were held at Birtley ABC on April 3. “We have faced a number of challenges recently with the police cancelling events, however I am delighted that the northern area semi-final went ahead on Sunday and I would like to thank Graeme Rutherford and everyone at Birtley ABC along with all of my colleagues for their fantastic efforts in making sure the event took place and ensuring the Juniors got an opportunity to compete,” said Paul Porter, the chief executive of England Boxing. “We are determined that future events will not be affected and have set up a working group to investigate the reasons for the cancellations and establish a closer dialogue with the police to get a better insight into the safety concerns that have caused them to cancel recent events. It will also look into several reported instances of individuals attempting to interfere and disrupt the planning of last Sunday’s event. Thankfully these malicious activities were not successful owing to the great work of the team at Birtley.

“We are committed to dealing with this situation and everyone at England Boxing is working as hard as possible to ensure we are able to deliver safe and secure events for boxers, their families, volunteers and supporters. The continued safety and wellbeing of our members and all those involved in the sport is the number one priority of England Boxing and we are determined to not let any external factors get in the way of our great sport.”
