Amateur boxers from across BC will be in Victoria this weekend for a second time this year.
The event was last held at the historic Roundhouse at Bayview Place in Esquimalt in May, and by popular demand from the boxing community and the crowd who witnessed that first boxing card, Champ Promotions announced the event is returning.
This time around, the event will be held at the Songhees Wellness Centre on the unceded territory of the Songhees Nation this Saturday, October 1st.
The action-packed event will feature 12 bouts of boxers from around BC, including the Victoria area— many of these boxers have their sights set at the professional level.
“We are honoured to be able to exhibit some of Canada’s best amateur boxing talent,” said event organizers.
“Many of the boxers are from the Victoria area and many will travel from across Canada for this event. These boxing cards provide a steppingstone to such venues as the Pan Am Games and the 2024 Olympics.
Some of the boxers at this weekend’s event will be representing Canada in the future at major international events, or in the professional ring. Come out and support your local boxers and be a part of their climb to the top of the boxing world.
The evening, dubbed “ROUND 2” will include a live DJ that will fill the venue with music and energy before, between, and after the fights.
There’ll be several bars, food, and merchandise available on site. With less than 700 seats available, and pre-sales already going fast, order your tickets now.
Tickets can be purchased online at Champ Promotions until 5 p.m. on Friday or available at the door after that, however, if you’re feeling lucky, we’re giving away two pairs of tickets to the event!
