GHA doctors perform pre-match medicals to ensure all boxers ready to go for Rumble on the Rock

With just 24 hours to go to the Rumble on the Rock - the eagerly anticipated international boxing event - the production crew for promoters Matchroom were  making sure everything was in place at Europa Point.

Sky's outside broadcast truck arrived earlier this week, with teams from household names like Sky Sports, Sky Sports News and BBC preparing to cover the event for their international audiences.

On Friday afternoon, the ringside pyrotechnics were tested. 

And Gibraltar Health Authority (GHA) teams met with the medical team of the British Boxing Board Of Control at the Europa Point complex. The GHA said its doctors performed pre-match medicals to ensure all boxers were fit and ready to compete.

The GHA said it had put in place a medical clinic, a ring side emergency ambulance and a neurosurgical team.

Covid-19 testing for the 500 vaccinated fans will take place at the Victoria Stadium earlier on Saturday.
