Non-professional boxers from around the country are set to take part in the Champion of Champions Amateur Boxing Tournament that will be staged at the Colliery Stadium in Hwange on December 4.
Zimbabwe Amateur Boxing Association president Lovemore Malianga yesterday said the association was expecting a large contingent of pugilists to descend on the coal-mining town.
Seven provinces have confirmed participation.
“We are looking forward to having the Champion of Champions tournament. We expect seven provinces,plus the Zimbabwe National Army, to participate,” he said.
In the seniors section, Bulawayo will feature Ntando Sibanda, Steven Masiyambumbi, Last Moyo and Ndodana Moyo.
Young Meluleki Ngulube and Brighton Masiri are some of the juniors expected to take part in the tournament for Bulawayo Province.
Ngulube remains one of the best amateur boxers in the country and a good perfomance will be expected from him.
Malianga said they were expecting boxers from Bulawayo Province to win their fights after coming second in the National Youth Games staged in August.
Douglas Gadzira will sponsor the tournament.
