Ian John-Lewis has withdrawn his claims of race discrimination made against the British Boxing Board of Control Limited (BBBofC) in the Employment Tribunal. The parties have reached an agreed confidential settlement to resolve their differences without any admission of liability.

The BBBofC reaffirms its commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, and will continue to work to ensure the trust of all those involved in the sport of professional boxing.
