Rescheduled Multi Nations dates

The 2020 Cologne World Cup, formerly the Chemistry Cup, has been rescheduled for later this year in Germany.

The new date for one of the world’s most prestigious multi-nation tournaments is October 14/19 in Cologne.

Ireland claimed four medals at the previous edition of the World Cup in April 2019, courtesy of Michaela Walsh, Tony Browne, Carly McNaul and Joe Ward.

Walsh went all the way in the featherweight class and McNaul and Browne won silver.

Ward, a two-time Chemistry Cup champion who has since switched codes, took home bronze.

Meanwhile, the Spanish Boxam Tournament has been rescheduled for October 5/11 in Castellon de la Plane.
