In the wake of the BBBofC canceling all UK events until at least early April, Matchroom Boxing has gone a step further and canceled all of its events until May, scrapping a trio of planned cards on DAZN.

Unlike Top Rank and PBC, however, Eddie Hearn and co. are already looking into rescheduling. If you’ve somehow found a way to get blocked by Matchroom on Twitter and can’t see the post:
- The March 28th David Avanesyan-Josh Kelly card will see its cast “merged into future cards.” I’m pretty sure it was still about 80% comprised of TBA, so that shouldn’t be difficult.
- The April 4th Lewis Ritson-Miguel Vazquez card will take place June 27th.
- The April 24th Terri Harper-Natasha Jones card will take place in June “with a date to be confirmed shortly.”
And with that, it looks like we’re down to Joe Joyce-Daniel Dubois until the summer. Unless, of course, I can successfully sell my plan to host events at 10,000 feet in rings suspended by hot air balloons. Still working out the kinks, but I stand by the Lawnchair Larry method.
