Blackpool fighters Jack Arnfield and Brian Rose, as well as trainer Bobby Rimmer,, have been 'severely reprimanded' by the British Boxing Board Of Control.

The trio were called in front of a hearing of the Central Area council of the Board in Bradford after incidents at the weigh-in prior to the match-up in Manchester between Arnfield and Rose in March.

The duo went head-to-head on the stage at which point Rose's Rimmer trainer rushed over in an apparent attempt to confront Arnfield.

Explaining his actions at the time, Rimmer claimed he was 'protecting his fighter.'

Speaking of the hearing, Les Potts, secretary of the Central Area Council, said: "All three were found guilty by their own admission and by the video evidence.

"They apologised and offered assurances that something like that would never happen again and that was accepted."
