The Friday Night Invitational amateur boxing tournament scheduled to continue this Friday and conclude on the final Friday of November at LUX Night Club has been postponed until at least early 2013 due to a three-month suspension handed down to USA Boxing late Wednesday night, according to event organizer Don Patterson.

The suspension, delivered by the International Boxing Association, covers all sanctioned competitions, coach and official clinics and boxing club activities in the United States.

AIBA levied the suspension against USA Boxing due to inappropriate comments made by ex-USA Boxing President Hal Adonis in a magazine article earlier this year. It is unclear if further conditions or demands will follow, according to USA Boxing.
