England Boxing is hosting a Talent Open Day for Junior boxers on Sunday 5th April at Tamworth Boxing Gym.

Open Talent Days are designed to identify talented boxers that may not have been scouted during the national Championships. This could include two highly-rated boxers meeting in the early stages of the competition and others unable to enter due to injury.

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 met the required assessment levels will be invited onto the England Talent Programme.

Registration is open until Monday 23rd March 2019.
