• Britain risks forfeiting boxing clash after Moroccan visas refused


    LONDON: The World Series of Boxing will decide by Friday whether Britain must forfeit an international match against a Moroccan team which was cancelled after the British government refused visas for the visitors, an international federation source said. The British Lionhearts were due to take on the Morocco Atlas Lions in London on Thursday, but it was called off just 24 hours before because of the visa refusal. “We will communicate very quickly on whether the match will be rearranged or forfeited,” said an official with the International Boxing Federation which oversees the WSB. Four members of the Moroccan team were refused visas. No official reason was given.
