Boxers to take up an on road show this weekend…

The unusual step of selling a tournament by taking boxers on a road show is going to take place this weekend, this initiative is taken by promoter Jeff Ellis.

Boxers Hekkie Budler, Ryno Liebenberg, Kevin Lerena, Malcolm Klassen, Ashley Dlamini and Duran Ray are to meet up the public at Southgate Mall in Johannesburg. By this means, Ellis says that he is trying to popularize the sport which has lost support.


“With so many road shows happening, this is the first of the many that we will do,” Ellis said. We want the public to be acquainted with the boxers. With so many activities planned, the general public will meet these boxers in person. Having said that, they will be involved in quite a few activities which include pad work together with a skipping rope competition! Winners of these activities will get double tickets for Golden Gloves’ box-and-dine tournament at Emperors Palace on September 29.”

In that contest — backed by Chesa Nyama — Lerena will host Gogita Gorgiladze from Georgia for the unoccupied World Boxing Council (WBC) Youth junior heavyweight title and Klassen will meet Justin Savi from Benin in a nontitle 10-rounder in the junior lightweight class.

In the junior lightweight division, Dlamini and Sydney Maluleka will be in action, on the other hand, duran ray, son of retired heavyweight fighter Basil will make his debut not in favor of Onke Duku.

Invincible in 10 fights, Lerena, 22 will face Gorgiladze who was trodden Ilunga Makabu in four rounds for the International Boxing Federation’s youth cruiserweight title last year. Since that defeat, Gorgiladze has fought 12 times and won seven fights. With that said, he has also won 19 wins against six losses.

In the meantime Klassen – the adroit fighter from Toekomsrus on the West Rand, has not seen battle given that last year of May, when he lost to Will Tomlinson for the International Boxing Organization strap in Australia. While Klassen has 27 wins from 35 fights and Savi, the ex- WBC silver featherweight champion, has 26 victories from 28 bouts.

It is the former world champion Brian Mitchell, who will host the event this Saturday. Apart from this, the event will also be used as a send-off for Budler and Liebenberg.

Favorites of 2010 in each Boxing Match

2010 hasn’t been pretty for boxing fans as it was anticipated, namely, the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao not at all planned organized. Still, there have been few big battles, and there are lots more on the agenda as well. Here are the favorites for each match.


  • Juan Manuel Lopez vs. Rafael Marquez: This is as a great deal of a pick-em battle as there could be in boxing, and it’s an exceedingly interesting match between a young, hard punching dynamo, and a technical, efficient, all-action soldier. Any man could finish up winning this battle, but Marquez may be a bit too worn down pursuing his encounters with Israel Vazquez.
  • Andre-Ward-Vs-Andre-Dirrell

  • Andre Ward vs. Andre Dirrell: This is a competition of two grand, young American boxers, and former Olympic teammates and medalists. Ward is the present beloved to win the Super Six, and as such, he’ll be most wanted to beat Dirrell. Ward is a more absolute and psychologically strong fighter, with more tricks up his sleeve.
  • Carl-Froch-Vs-Arthur-Abraham

  • Carl Froch vs. Arthur Abraham: Further cheering up Super Six match, two of the solid punchers and strongest guys in the upper weight divisions set out at it in an essential collide, where each man wants a gigantic win to truly keep his trusts lively for winning the contest. Froch is more violent and wild, however Abraham arguably punches improved, and absolutely has the superior protection.
  • Manny-Pacquiao-Vs-Antonio-Margarito

  • Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito: Though Margarito obtained a high profile, big money fight after his current hand drape scandal, although this is still an interesting match where Pound for Pound kingpin Manny Pacquiao has to meet yet another much higher, much stronger fighter. Pacquiao’s rapidity and forcefulness should overpower Margarito, yet.
  • Juan-Manuel-Marquez-Vs-Michael-Katsidis

  • Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Michael Katsidis: Marquez is still the champion at 135 lbs, and he’s approaching off a second success over Juan Diaz. Still, there have been rumors that Marquez is past his owing date, and he could be matured for the pick and choosing. With the hostility, steep will and fire power of Katsidis, he’s a big opponent to experiment that premise.

    Heavy Bag workouts can strengthen your body

    A heavy bag workout is considered one of the best full-body workouts. Apart from fitness benefits, a heavy bag workout can develop certain other skills. Even if you’re not interested in boxing, using a punching bag is a challenging aerobic workout that helps in gaining strength. Nonstop punching is physically taxing; the best thing is to break your workouts into rounds. Boxers use three minute rounds with a minute of rest in between. Interval training routines are considered best for home workouts as it helps in keeping your intensity up and maintains your own pace.

    A person who spends time punching a heavy bag should wear boxing hand wraps. If he does not, it can lead to hand or wrist injury. Boxing gloves are also important. Buy punching bags from as it is inexpensive and it allows you to hit the bag harder without fear of bruising your knuckles. Gloves keep you safe and give you a good workout.

    New boxers may find it difficult to hit the heavy bag. If possible, they should get instructions from a boxing trainer or watch videos or DVDs to learn the basic punching techniques. Hanging a punching bag is simple, if you have the room for it. Make sure you have at least five feet of space all around the bag. Never keep the punching bag low, your workout will be less effective. If it is too high, the bag will be harder and you may experience some pain in the hands when punching.
