The promotion had three cards planned

Turns out Luis Nery-Aaron Alameda was just the beginning. Premier Boxing Champions announced today that all “scheduled events for March and April have been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date.”

That’s admittedly a bit of a dramatic way to say “two more events are canceled;” aside from Nery on the 28th, the only casualties are the April 11th Jamal James-Thomas Dulorme PBC on FOX show and Showtime’s April 18th David Benavidez vs. Roamer Alexis Angulo-led tripleheader.

Taking a peek over at our boxing schedule, things look a mite grim for these next two months. We’re basically down to David Avanesyan-Josh Kelly as far as meaningful March fights and Daniel Dubois-Joe Joyce is holding the line alone for the first half of April. The dueling Inoue-Casimero/Kovalev-Barrera cards on the 25th are still intact as far as I know, but Nevada and California’s recent gathering limitations make them far, far from sure things.

Y’know, if they keep spreading out the cancellations like this, we might actually have enough content to hold out.
