Hop, skip and jump to family boxing day

The great Willie Toweel, one of the best exponents of skipping in SA boxing history.

Promoters Rodney Berman and Jeff Ellis are going full-out to ensure Prospects at the Palace in two weeks is a family affair.

Boxing fans can not only look forward to 10 four-rounders featuring some of the country’s best talent. “Family” will be the theme of the day with a jumping castle plus hot dogs and popcorn for the little ones, who won’t have to pay to attend the tournament if they are under-12.

Adding to the excitement is a skipping competition, which anyone can enter. Last year young pro boxer DeeJay Kriel cleaned up – no surprise given how the discipline is the cornerstone of every boxer’s training.

The only condition is that entrants bring their own skipping rope. The winner will walk away with a pair of tickets for “Supercharged” on March 19.

Tickets for February 7 will be available at the door at a knockdown R100. Seating is unreserved.
