Amidst all the recent boxing cancellations it’s no surprise that some boxers are finding it frustrating. Not only are they losing out on paydays, but a lot of them were also in the middle of grueling training camps only to find out they won’t be fighting after all. One of those individuals is super welterweight Charles Conwell (12-0, 9 KOs) who was preparing for an April 10th card that will no longer be held.

Speaking to RingTV about the feelings he experienced when learning he’d no longer be competing, Conwell says:

“When you first hear it it’s frustrating because you’re in the midst of training camp, you’re putting your body through great stress, working hard every day and you’re leaving your family. Then for it not to happen, it’s frustrating for anybody,” said Conwell (12-0, 9 knockouts), a 2016 U.S. Olympian from Cleveland.

“But then you hear it happened to everybody so you really can’t be that mad, but at the same time you’re like, ‘I just want to fight.’”

For now Conwell is trying to keep his hopes high that everything will return to normal sooner than later, saying he just wants to get back to what he does best.
