PBC cancels fights through April

With coronavirus still taking over the United States and cancelling events for the foreseeable future, Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) has decided to go ahead and skip ahead and cancel all upcoming shows heading into the end of April today.

Those shows included the upcoming title eliminator with Luis Nery at bantamweight on March 28 in Las Vegas, the upcoming PBC on Fox card April 11 featuring Jamal James at The Armory in Minneapolis and the hometown bout in Phoenix featuring WBC Super middleweight champion David Benavidez.

Here is the Monday press release statement from Premier Boxing Champions:

Due to the growing concerns over COVID-19, Premier Boxing Champions scheduled events for March and April have been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date.

At this time there’s no information regarding future shows and dates.

“The health and safety of the boxers, fans and those working the events are of utmost importance to us,” said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions and lead PBC promoter for the cancelled shows. “We are all disappointed and as we get more information we will address future events.”

If you already ordered a PBC ticket in advance, all ticket orders will be refunded from your original point of purchase. If you have purchased online through Ticketmaster, all orders will be refunded automatically. Orders purchased with a credit card will be refunded to the credit card used for purchase. For third party purchases (SeatGeek, StubHub, etc.), please reach out to your original point of purchase for information regarding your credit.

This is the continuing sports trend of all events major and minor will be hammered home, as U.S. President Donald Trump spoke Monday afternoon that in all likelihood keep Americans hunkered down until July or August. While several states in the country, such as Ohio, have already implemented a curfew, what that means in the world of boxing is that any prospects of a live show in the United States, PBC or otherwise is not going to happen for a while.
