Junior Open Talent Day 2022

March 23, 2022 | by Matt Halfpenny


England Boxing is hosting an Open Talent Day (OTD) for Junior boxers (born in 2006 and 2007) on Saturday 9th April at Tamworth Boxing Club.

Open Talent Days are designed to identify talented boxers that may not have been scouted during the England Boxing National Junior Championships 2022 being staged in March.

This could be because two highly-rated boxers met in the early stages of the competition, or because a boxer was unable to take part due to injury or illness.

The standard England Boxing is looking for is high. Boxers on the programme are expected to meet training demands and compete in international competitions against the very best from other nations with a potential 24-month age difference.

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.

Following the assessment, boxers who meet the required assessment levels will be invited onto the England Talent Programme.

Registration (see below) is open until Friday 1st April at 4pm.
