Dubois vs. Joyce Moved To July 11, Josh Taylor Return Pushed Back

Following the guidelines and advisory measures announced by both the local government and the British Boxing Board of Control, Queensberry Promotions felt it would be inappropriate to proceed with any forthcoming boxing promotions in front of live audiences during April and May.

The coronavirus situation is evolving rapidly. Frank Warren's company will continue to follow the government’s guidelines to ensure the health and safety of the paying public, staff and the participants.

Regarding the two events currently have on sale, the following has been confirmed:
 
The ‘Seek and Destroy’ Event being headlined by Daniel Dubois v Joe Joyce on April 11 at the O2 Arena has now been rescheduled to Saturday July 11, still at the O2 Arena. Tickets will remain valid for the new date, however people who cannot attend the new date can obtain a refund from their original point of purchase.
 
World Champion Josh Taylor’s homecoming against mandatory challenger Apinun Khongsong, scheduled for May 2 at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow will no longer take place on this date. Refunds are available from the point of purchase. Warren is currently working with the SSE Hydro, Top Rank and MTK Global to identify a suitable alternative date to reschedule the event for the Scottish fans.
 
Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank have already reached agreement for Carl Frampton to challenge Jamel Herring for the WBO world super featherweight Championship in Belfast in June. This event was due to be announced this week. At this moment in time, they are still hopeful of being able to stage this event in June, however, the ever-changing landscape surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic will be monitored. Details of the date, venue and location will be announced in due course.
