Boxing Scotland would like to take this opportunity to thank the boxers, coaches, officials and volunteers whose contribution and support made our 2018 Novice Championships a truly exceptional competition.
Once again, the event received a phenomenal 500 entries and saw the completion of 260 bouts over the course of four days. There are still two bouts remaining in the Elite Male 69Kg and 75Kg. Clubs will be contacted in due course.
The standard of boxing throughout the four days of the tournament was truly a great testament to the hard work of boxers and coaches present. The standard of Boxing on Final’s Day the Sunday was fantastic. We have already received a large number of comments praising the performances of boxers at the finals on the Sunday.
While all the boxers who took part should be commended, the coaches, officials and volunteers must not be forgotten for the part they played in making the event such a success.
A total of 93 club submitted entries to this year’s tournament and from this 42 clubs had champions crowned – well done to all boxers who showed the courage and determination to step into the ring, many who were competing for the very first time.
I hope you enjoyed our 2018 Novice Championships and would like to extend our congratulations to our newly crowned Novice Champions.
