It’s A Bout Boxing Ireland release statement following show cancellation

Irish boxing was dealt a blow yesterday with the cancellation of a show set to take place in Dublin this Saturday [April 1st]

‘Táimid Laochra,’ promoted by It’s A Bout Boxing Ireland was shelved, with the Boxing Union of Ireland explaining that the card was pulled “due to a number of conditions not being complied with by the promoter.”

It’s A Bout Boxing Ireland have come out to apologise to the fighters and the fans for the card’s cancellation, and note that the decision was “due to circumstances beyound our control.”

In a statement provided to Irish-Boxing.com, the outfit said the following:

It is with the deepest regret that we must confirm that Saturday’s ‘Taimid Laochra’ show at the National Stadium has been cancelled by the Boxing Union of Ireland (BUI).

Unfortunately, due to some circumstances beyond our control, the decision was made for the show to be cancelled.

As promoters, we acknowledge the responsibility we had to all fighters and coaches involved on the card, their supporters and everyone involved, including all at the BUI. They have been let down at an extremely late stage in their training camps and for that, we can only apologise.

To our headliner Mike Perez, to Bernard Roe, Gerard Whitehouse, Rohan Date, Lynn Harvey, Carl McDonald, Allan Phelan, Keane McMahon, Johnny Corcoran, Barry Barnes, Dylan McDonagh, Regan Buckley and John Joyce, we deeply regret what has happened and that their big night has been ruined.

For those who have purchased tickets, they will be refunded as a matter of urgency. We hope to learn from this experience and this setback and bounce back even stronger in the future.
