BOXING teams from the Alfred Nzo District are preparing for a boxing tournament set to take place in Durban on October 20.

Earlier this month, the young athletes participated in training sessions at Mount Ayliff to prepare them up for the anticipated tournament. “Players were taught about key skills in boxing that they should remember when taking part in the tournament,” said Mveli Hloba, the organiser of the tournament.

Boxing equipment has been delivered to the Alfred Nzo District Municipality for local clubs to be able to conduct further training.

At the tournament in October, boxers from Alfred Nzo, Ugu, and Harry Gwala District will be playing under the theme “Fighting for Water”, and the winner will be awarded a big water reservoir for their community.

The tournament was introduced to nurture the talents of young people from rural areas to empower them to one day become professional boxers.
