Boxing BC provincials coming to Abbotsford

Dozens of boxers battling it out this weekend to crown BC champions

It’s knuckle-up time again at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre.

The 2018 Boxing BC Provincial Championships are set to invade the Abbotsford hotel today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday), with bell time for both days scheduled for 7 p.m.

There are expected to be at least a dozen bouts on both days.

Male and female athletes aged 15 and over will be competing on both evenings, with boxers from all across the province battling it out for provincial titles and for spots on Team B.C. at the National Championships event in March.

Divisions at the event include: open, novice and sub-novice, with a number of different weight classes within each division.

Local boxers from both the Abbotsford-Mission Boxing Club and Mamba MMA are expected to hit the ring.

The event will also include a vendors table, 50/50 draws and silent auction.
