Details of July’s Senior Open Talent Day 2023

May 12, 2023 | by Matt Halfpenny


England Boxing is hosting an Open Talent Day (OTD) for Senior boxers (born between 1983 and 2004) on Saturday 1st July at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.

OTDs are designed to identify talented boxers who may not have been scouted during the recent England Boxing National Amateur Championships (NACs) 2023.

This could be due to talented boxers meeting in the early stages of the competition, or being unable to enter due to injury or illness.

The standard England Boxing is looking for is high. Boxers on the Performance Pathway are expected to meet training demands and compete in international competitions against the very best from other nations.

Each boxer will be assessed on technical and tactical skills, using a rating system (RAGG), and will receive feedback from the England Boxing coaches.

Following the assessment, boxers who meet the required assessment levels will be invited onto the England Boxing Performance Pathway.
