Boxing Junior Championships cancelled

A national junior boxing tournament has been cancelled by police due to a “threat to life” for the second year running.
England Boxing’s Junior Championships were due to take place at Basildon Sporting Village on Saturday and Sunday.
The governing body said the cancellation had ruined the “dreams of young boxers”.
Essex Police confirmed it advised the organisers to cancel the tournament.
As first reported in the Essex Echo, the event was for 14 to 15 year old boxers.
It was cancelled in 2016 when it was due to take place in Portsmouth, also due to a “threat of life” warning.
