Boxing SA‚ the national Department of Sport and Recreation and the African Union Sport Council (AUSC) Region 5 will host the first Southern African Boxing Convention (SABC) in May‚ Boxing SA CE Tsholofelo Lejaka has announced. He said 15 countries in the SADC region would meet at Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg from May 23-25, coinciding with the Africa Month Celebration. "The big idea is to have this convention as a permanent feature on the annual calendar of all Boxing Commissions in the region so that we can continue to draw strength from each other as we grow boxing within our own jurisdictions‚ most importantly in the Southern Region and the entire African continent‚" said Lejaka. "For now it is but a seed‚ but as we continue to nurture it this seed will surely germinate and grow into a huge Baobab tree under which the boxing community will continue to converge on an annual basis." Lejaka said this was part of the broader Africa Month Celebration programme of the Southern Region. "...
