Sep 30, 2012 Sports Comments Off on Busy period for amateur boxers as GABA maximizes activity levels
Novice C/Ship set for coming weekend
The Guyana Amateur Boxing Association will maximize its activity levels over the next few months as it focuses on keeping young boxers active. The intense programme of events commences Friday and Saturday coming at the National Gymnasium Tarmac with the staging of the National Novices Championships.
A total of about 60 boxers from the gyms around the country will be competing for honours. GABA President, Steve Ninvalle, indicated that they are catering for some 33 young fighters coming from out of town for the event.
Ninvalle informed that they have a hectic schedule planned and it’s all aimed at keeping the boxers active and giving them as much competition as is possible. He also informed, strengthening his point, stating that just recent a team of boxers were in Trinidad and Tobago to participate in a card there including Imran ‘Magic’ Khan. Khan had to fight as a Lightweight on the card which was used as practice for those making the trip. Ninvalle noted that going up to that level was a good test for Khan that will help him in future fights.
A few amateur boxers recently turned professional and GABA will be keen to stem that flow, giving their fighters top flight competition to look forward to. They will hope to keep the better fighters focused, coupled with better training and preparation in the hope of targeting medals at the next Olympic Games.
The GABA head stated that they are making every effort to secure top flight activity for the boxers at every opportunity available.
The programme of activities continue on October 20 and 21 with the staging of the Under-16 Championships, followed by the National Intermediate Championships in the first week of November, while in the first week of December it’s the National Open Championships.
GABA executives met recently and have reorganized their programme on the way forward and the upcoming increase of activity is expected to be the trend looking ahead among other improvements.
