Performance: Senior Open Talent Day 2024

June 12, 2024 | by Chris Boyd


England Boxing is hosting an Open Talent Day (OTD) for Senior boxers (born between 1984 and 2005) on Saturday 13th July at the English Institute of Sport Sheffield.

OTDs are designed to identify talented boxers who may not have been scouted during the recent England Boxing 2024 National Amateur Championships. This could be due to talented boxers meeting in the early stages of the competition and others 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 potentially 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 are welcome to receive feedback from the England Boxing coaches.

Following the assessment, boxers who meet the required levels will be invited onto the England Boxing Performance Pathway, at either the performance or development phase.
