England Boxing Talent Programme welcomes Youth boxers to an Open Talent Day

February 25, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny


England Boxing’s Talent Programme is hosting an Open Talent Day (OTD) for Youth male and female boxers on Sunday 3rd March, following the conclusion of the England Boxing National Youth Championships 2019.

The OTDs are designed to identify talented boxers that may not have been scouted during these nationals to take into account two highly-rated boxers meeting in the early stages of the competition and others unable to enter due to injury.

This is the fifth year the days have been run by the Talent Pathway, and a number of boxers that have gone on to compete internationally through this route.

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

Boxers will also have the opportunity to spar and train alongside Talent Pathway boxers, allowing England coaches and the boxers to gauge what level they are at in relation to the international circuit.

Boxers who meet the required assessment levels will be invited onto the England Talent Programme.

Registration is open until 5pm on Sunday 24th February
