THE FREEDOM Boxing Club in Kimberley is gearing up to cross the Northern Cape borders for a major competition in the Free State taking place tomorrow (Saturday).

The club is headed to the Inter-Provincial Tournament in Bethlehem, marking a significant milestone for the team.

Boxing coach Joseph Magugwana shared his insights with the DFA, explaining the need for the club to embark on this journey.

“We have eight clubs in Kimberley, but for some reason, they don’t want to compete with us. We really need the clubs to compete against each other, but getting that to happen has proved very difficult.

“So currently, our boxers can’t get enough practice in and gain experience; that is why we need to travel now.”

To ensure their readiness, the club has been conducting rigorous training sessions. “We are sending a group of 12 boxers to go and compete, and I think we are well prepared for this event. We are training five days a week for two hours a day to make sure they are fit and ready,” Magugwana stated.

The coach said that this tournament is not just about gaining experience but also about preparing for future challenges.

“This tournament is also preparation to get the boxers ready for the national tournament, because the best of the best fights there,” he told the DFA.

The upcoming event in Bethlehem promises to be a crucial stepping stone for the Freedom Boxing Club, offering their athletes the chance to showcase their skills and build the necessary experience for the national stage.

Readers can keep their eyes on the DFA to catch up on their results after they return next week.
