BOXING gets under way again this coming weekend when the Northern Cape Open Boxing Organisation (NCOBO) hosts a “novice championship” tournament at the Jules Katz gymnasium in Beaconsfield, Kimberley on Saturday.
NCOBO president, occasional referee and club coach Raymond Kgang Mothobi confirmed that the association will host a “novice championship” at the former business premises of the Katz family.
The association is an affiliate of the South African National Boxing Organisation (Sanabo). The event will be open to all grades of boxers from all clubs and associations from around the province, he said.
The tournament will start at 2pm tomorrow, but there will be no spectators in keeping with the present Covid-19 protocols imposed by the Government. Mothobi said at the tournament itself the technical teams of all clubs will be limited to 50 percent of the squad.
The novice championship has now turned into an annual event hosted primarily in the Frances baard area. It has been staged at various venues before such as at the Galeshewe Mayibuye centre as well as the Jim Summers hall in Schmidtsdrift road.
Mothobi assured all interested parties that the tournament will observe Covid-19 protocols.
