Nico Leivars will be the first member of the GB Boxing squad to compete since October’s Alexis Vastine tournament when he steps through the ropes today at 15.00 against Hungary’s Zoltan Siroki.
The bantamweight is one of four GB boxers competing today, alongside welterweight Harvey Lambert, middleweight Lewis Richardson and women’s welterweight Rosie Eccles.
For Rosie and Lewis it will be their first bouts since competing in last year’s Boxing Road to Tokyo Olympic London Qualifier which was suspended after three days due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Despite this, Lewis managed to win his opening bout and is now won victory away when the tournament resumes later this year.
