A new year has arrived, the year of Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury, but boxing is on pause in the UK following fresh restrictions.
The British Boxing Board of Control has suspended all boxing activity for the entire month of January though it remains to be seen when restrictions on the sport will be lifted.
The opening drought should, in theory, pave the way for a big summer of showdowns, with Joshua v Fury at the very top of the agenda in both fighters’ minds.
AJ defeated Kubrat Pulev in December while Fury hasn’t stepped into the ring since his seismic victory over Deontay Wilder in February 2020.
But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves just yet, with a host of rising stars and bristling talents around the world ready to make a name for themselves, as well as the occasional showbiz bout, with Floyd Mayweather stepping back into the ring.
The UK boxing scene has plenty of talented stars capable of lighting up arenas across the country and though it may be a little while before we see them in all their splendour, you can expect fireworks when the show gets on the road.
RadioTimes.com has rounded up the full boxing schedule for this week including how you can watch the action live from home.
