England Boxing has been saddened to hear of the passing of hugely-respected London boxing coach Colin Webster, a victim of the Coronavirus.

Webster was a former coach and Vice President at Islington Boxing Club, where he presented the Colin Webster shield for the Junior Boxer of the Year.

Ho also served Finchley ABC with distinction, while his son, Danny Oliver, is a former Junior ABA champion.

An Instagram post from Islington read: “Colin was a fantastic ambassador to amateur boxing who was associated with Islington BC and Finchley ABC for many years.

“Our thoughts are with his family at this upsetting time. RIP.”

A Finchley post added: “RIP to a Finchley legend Colin Webster. Thanks for everything Colin, you will be missed by us all.”

England Boxing would like to add its own condolences to Colin’s family and friends.
