Promoter Frank Warren, while still mourning James Murray, puts the sport back under the microscope today even more convinced in his own mind that it should continue.

In the first major show since Murray's tragic bout against Drew Docherty a week ago in Glasgow, Warren stages a world bantamweight title fight between the World Organisation holder, Alfred Kotey, of Ghana, and Puerto Rican Daniel Jimenez at Bethnal Green's York Hall.

Warren, who will announce next week his own contribution to improving safety measures, said: "I've been encouraged to receive calls from boxers asking me when they will be fighting next. Not one said he would be giving it up. Quite the reverse. They all want the show to go on."
