British boxing chiefs issue guidelines for returning to the ring

LONDON: Boxers fighting in Britain should wear masks during ring walks and be banned from using a bucket of saliva under proposals to allow the resumption of the sport, it was reported on Wednesday.

Boxing Authorities are reportedly preparing for a restart in July after the coronavirus to turn off.

The BBC said that a consultation document sent to the promoters proposed that the boxing cards would be held behind closed doors with a maximum of five bouts and not championship contests.

Boxers would be allowed to box without a mask, but referees and corner staff would be forced to wear them.
