Fight fracas probed by Boxing Board
Blackpool fighters Brian Rose and Jack Arnfield as well as trainer Bobby Rimmer have been summoned to appear before a British Boxing Board Of Control disciplinary panel next month.
A hearing has been convened in Yorkshire to discuss incidents involving the trio at the weigh-in prior to a title fight at Manchester Arena last month.
Middleweights Rose and Arnfield clashed going head-to-head on the podium - Rose’s trainer Rimmer then dashed across the stage in an apparent bid to confront Arnfield a fighter he used to train.
The disciplinary panel of the Central Area council of the boxing board will meet in Bradford on May 7.
A wide range of sanctions are open to the panel.
These include a withdrawal of a licence to box or train, a suspension of a licence or a fine.
Les Potts, secretary of the Area Council, said: “There are a multitude of options.”
Arnfield beat Rose to keep the World Boxing Association’s international title.
