March 16 (Reuters) - The European, American and final world qualifying boxing tournaments for the Tokyo Olympic Games were suspended on Tuesday due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the International Olympic Committee said.
The IOC said the European qualifier in London that was already under way and due to run to March 24 would end after Tuesday’s evening session. It said it would provide details on the qualification process for the other regions at a later date. (Reporting by Karolos Grohmann; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
