The IOC Boxing Task Force (BTF) regrets to inform that due to the Coronavirus outbreak and recent measures taken by the Argentinian government, the Boxing Road to Tokyo Americas qualifying event scheduled to take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 26 March to 3 April has been suspended.
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) informed the BTF earlier today that the government of Argentina has taken the decision to restrict all types of international events in the country with immediate effect as a precautionary measure to COVID-19.
The BTF understands and respects the decision taken by the public authorities of Argentina during this difficult time worldwide. We are searching for the appropriate solution for this unexpected situation and will immediately inform the National Olympic Committees, National Federations and other impacted parties as soon as further information is available.
We apologize for this unexpected occurrence and understand the inconvenience for all stakeholders, especially for our athletes and delegations. We assure you that the BTF is doing its utmost to find the best solution.
