Organizers said they have decided to move the event from Wuhan in central China in order to protect the health of those attending. The city is considered the epicenter of the virus, which causes pneumonia-like symptoms, Kyodo reports.

The International Olympic Committee will announce the new competition host and schedule once decided.

Daisuke Narimatsu, who competed at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, was among the Japanese boxers scheduled to take part in six men's and five women's divisions at the qualifiers.
