Thursday evening’s Fight Night has now been cancelled.
The event, due to take place on Thursday 19 down in Venue of the Students’ Union, regularly sees over 500 attendees who watch the amateur student boxing event.
The cancellation of the event echoes similar moves made by universities across the country, with sports matches being cancelled and the varsities between Southampton and Portsmouth, and Leicester and De Montfort, being cancelled. Sporting events and other mass gatherings have also been cancelled across the country, with the My Chemical Romance tour being cancelled and football being suspended.
At Newcastle, the University’s Spring Recruitment Fair has been cancelled citing the Coronavirus as the cause, and the Insights public lectures have been postponed.
