Statement from the British Amateur Boxing Association on participation in the World Series of Boxing Series IV, 2013-14



The British Amateur Boxing Association (BABA) has confirmed that there will not be a British franchise in the next season of the World Series of Boxing, 2013-14.
 
A spokesperson for the BABA explained: “We have been in discussions with World Series Boxing and have come to the agreement that there will not be a British franchise in the next series of WSB which begins towards the end of 2013.

 
“We are very supportive of the World Series of Boxing and felt that the participation of the British Lionhearts in last season’s competition was a great showcase for the sport and a good experience for our boxers however as a (largely) publicly funded organisation, the BABA is not in a position to underwrite the costs or take-on the financial risks of running a British franchise.”
