THE British Boxing Board of Control have officially confirmed that they've suspended all British boxing in January due to Covid.

The decision means Chris Eubank Jr's January 29 fight against Liam Williams will be rescheduled AGAIN.

The fight was originally delayed by six weeks after Williams picked up a shoulder injury.

And the delay pushes Eubank Jr's plans for a title fight against Gennady Golovkin back even further.

The 32-year-old says GGG wants to fight in England, and he insists he'll be able to sell out a football stadium.

He told The Daily Mail: "He's a great champion whose been in my sights a long time and who I would be proud to fight.

"He says he wants to fight again in England and he and I would pack a football stadium.

"He doesn't have any other options as good as that unless Canelo Alvarez wants to fight him again. Which looks doubtful."

Although the fight is scheduled to take place in early February, an extension of the suspension could see that fight rescheduled too.

One fan said on Twitter: "What about Khan/Brook? If that gets cancelled, they better not move it abroad."

The Sun's Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits' arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions, especially for sports events.
